I have a 2 1/2" parrotfish in a 75 who is about 1/2" longer than the 2 convicts in the tank. They will go back and forth when facing and both species hold their own, Seems the convicts only have a problem when he gets near their cave.

Well, my personal experience with convicts would lead me to beleive that this won't work. Parrots are way to passive to put up with the attitudes of Convicts. Don't let thier small size fool you.

the convicts I have had in the past were very agressive and nipped at fish even when they were bigger than them, I have never owned a parrot cichlid but i've heard they are fairly peaceful so i don't know how well one would deal with convicts
