Would two Parrot Fish work in a 40 gallon tank?

    Are you talking about the freshwater blood parrot cichlid? or the salt water parot fish?

    The blood parrot fish should really have a tank that is no less then 48 inches long. I know you can find a 40 gallon breeder that is 48 inches long, put really a 75 gallon tank should be considered bare minimum.

    Salt water parot fish need a LOT more

    No, the tank will be too small which can cause the parrots to be aggressive and harass each other.

    Smaller species of fish would do better.

    No. they need to be in a tank that can accommodate at least 300 gallons of water.

    It would work but the fish would not be happy and it would shorten their life. Angel Fish,Fancy Goldfish, Blue Ram's, Kilifish and most Goby Fish would do much better.
