I have a 125g long I have a convict 7yr old male,2 green terrors 5yr,convict/redparrot hybrid 1yr,and a leapord hifin pleco and I have a red blood parrot that I may reintroduce it breed with the convict and I split them up.Do you think the tank is over stocked and If not will I be able to add a bottom dweller like a few clown loaches or something alike catfish maybe?

Your terrors will tear clown loaches apart.

I would call this tank well over stocked with the parrot (my thoughts on parrotfish aren't really relevant) and the pleco, depending on your filtration setup. If you want a bottom feeder with SA's, entertain the idea of chocolate doraydids or some of the larger synodontis species, such as a featherfin. Any bottom-dweller you introduce is going to be somewhat shy, demanding a hide for its own territory and likely competing with your leopard highfin plecostomus.

Oh, I'm not saying to remove anything. That "over" is a typo, sorry.
