My tank is a 45 gallon NPT. The blood parrot that I've seen seem to be all reddish/orange... but the ones I have are white..

I believe the fish is balloon Ram .
Albino coloring is new to me, but so was the Neon blue variety of this fish until a few month's ago.
I could be wrong,,but I don't think so.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Beautiful tank!
Are there other fish in there? I ask because if these are a parrot hybrid (white is not impossible depending on whatever was mixed in..) they could turn aggressive to any smaller fish as they grow. The tank is fine for those two though. Balloon ram will stay a lot smaller though.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Ahh... i think you guys might be right with balloon ram. Just googled for some pics and its getting closer. Thanks for that guys!!

Olympia: that pic Just looks like it. I just have 4 other angelfishes. They all seem to be very shy and hide whenever i go near to the tank. They're not eating either.

What temperature is the water? Rams will like it a little warmer than most fish. Turning it up to 80F (27C) might help their appetites, and will be fine for angels.

Tetra bit's,New life Spectrum pellet's for small fish should interest them.
Ram's will forage along the bottom, and rarely take food's until it reaches the substrate.

Not sure but think food selection might be different in Hong Kong than it is here.
