NEW 30 Gallon!

So I got a new 30 gal COMPLETE setup....FREE!!!

It has a filter for a 75 gallon tank. Could I keep a couple of blood red parrots, with a bushy nose pleco in there??? I know you are all probably going to tell me no but it can't hurt to ask!

Thanks!

Have you read up on the blood parrots? I myself wouldn't go anywhere near a fish with so many potential problems but if you really wanted a pair then maybe look into a 40 or 50 gallon to give them some swimming space - a bristlenose will do fine with anything you choose as long as the tank mates are young enough to not try to eat it, a lot of pet stores sell BN at 1-2inch in length and if you got adult parrots that could end badly


Do some research before you decide

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Dwarf neon rainbows would be great in a 30gal, and if your unsure about a dojo then how about a group of kuhli loaches? Get sand as a substrate with a few live plants 5ish kuhli loaches and neon rainbows will leave you room for a couple other types of fish as well and would look great

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.
