I think you take out the blood parrot, but otherwise the tank is good.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

i think the tanks beautiful,
i especially like the center piece,it really makes the tank.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

He is not dyed, they are naturally orange. They are a cross between fish though he is not fertile. Besides, it is impossible for me to get rid of him, he belongs to my mother...

I'm also not a fan of the blood parrot but it's mom's, so what can you do??
I think your tank looks great. You've got quite the green thumb!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
