i got a Marimo Ball today for my 20 gallon becouse my blood parrots are really aggressive becouse they lay eggs every month soo i cant put a pleco in there bc they kill it.. is a Marimo Ball good..
Good for what?
Even if you could put a pleco in there why would you? That tank is not big nuff for the 2 parrots, probably one of the reasons they are so angry all the time.
Plecos don't eat fish poop if that's the reason you want one.
you cant really put a pleco in a 20 gallon by itself either... they get too big, let alone 2 blood parrots.. marimo balls are nice, so if tis for decoration thats fine, but they wont really serve a practical purpose and has nothing to do with plecos...
ok well i had the blood parrots for 4 years and they are doing fine the reson why they are attacking plecos is be they lay eggs all the time and they are territoral when it comes to when they lay..!!!!!!
Just to be clear, surviving and "doing well" is two very different things. That tank is too small for 2 Parrots. Will you be upgrading any time soon?
well fish, in a confined space, wills top growing externally, but internally they will continue to grow which causes problems for the fish's health. Eventually the fish die prematurely. If they are irritable, it might be from the fact that they are not comfortable.
However, that is not the topic we are discussing, you still have not answered why u want a marimo ball and what the purpose of this thread is...
becouse my parrots are killing my plecos i got the ball bc it clears the alge and they wont kill it....!!!!
Umm I maybe wrong but it has been my experiance that the Marimo Balls do not control algae by there selves. I had them in one of my tanks and still had algae. You may have the algae because the tanks to small for the fish and the water parimeters are not stable. I belive its the nitrites that make the algae grow.
a marimo ball IS algae... its not a real plant. something like java fern would work better...
There is no point to even try to not have algae in that tank. The amount of poop generated by those 2 fish in that small amount of water is simply overwhelming for any filter, plant, etc. to cope with. Meaning bad water, high nitrites.
There is no point in spending more money on that tank if you do not move those 2 parrots.
