Blood Parrot!

Rana

One of my friend had a 30 gallon tank running for few months nd added a blood parrot and goldfish few days back, he gave up in the aquarium hobby and yesterday he gave me his tank with all other stuffs nd fishes. So the blood parrot is about 4 inch a and that goldfish about 3-4inches . There are 2 Goldie's and 1 parrot. So what I have been noticing is the blood parrot keeps pushing those Goldies sometimes at their back, not that agrresive but sometimes when it goes up it pushes one of the Goldies and goes somewhere else. Idk if he's hurting them or no, I know 30 gallon is small but this is what I got, might upgrade them to something big in near future. The blood parrots isn't really very aggressive or no constant chasing , just push in the back whenever it sees someone around , and he mainly does that when lights are turned off. But can bps kill those goldfish? By just those movements?

I really know v lil about these parrots

rehome either the goldies or the parrot. the goldies can top out to be close to 1 foot if they are common or 6-8 inches if they are fancy. The parrot tops at 1 foot. You will need a 55/75+ for the parrot or a 40 long for the fancies or if they are common they will need a 200 gallon plus tank. Happy fish keeping

it can stress to kill or even just kill them outright. Are the goldies fancy or common. Fancies got 2 tail and common got 1

I would just either get two separate tanks (at least 75 gallons for the blood parrot and at least 55 for the goldfish if fancy/a stock tub if common) or rehome both fish to separate tanks.

I have two blood parrots in a 90 gallon tank and that is the smallest size I would recommend for two-usually one or a group is best but these are a breeding pair but unfortunately it appears the male is sterile. That tank is too small for that stock and as someone else said, if they are common goldfish that won't work for them either.

The goldfishes are oranda , one gold one white with red cap. The parrot hates the white one, I don't have any option on getting a new tank, I already have 2 parrots in my club aquarium, and I don't manage that tank a lot, someone else is doing it, so I have to keep them in this 30 for now. I hope my Parrot doesn't kills then
