It's a long time since I showed you pictures from the parrots and the tank.
I want to to remember this picture as size comparison. It is probably from May 11th.
In the new tank I have some bigger pots now but the pot above still is in use.
I made a video from part of the tank and the same size pot is hanging on a branch on the left. Look how much they grew!
And this is what the tank looks like at night, well almost because I have a soft back lighting and I switched that off because my phone couldn't handle the back light.
In case you wonder what I did to avoid them digging up the plants? The Jave Fern is attached to wood. The Jungle val (will place it more to the right) is potted, also the junger/smaller Jungle val.
I used a shallow food container, filled it with fine gravel and pushed half a root tab in it. On top of the gravel I have black pebble rock. I camouflaged the containers with pots and and a black flat stone. Will have to get some more and smaller ones from these.
With my parrots this currently works amazingly well.
Light is less than 60 Watt HO in this 67 gallon 4ft tank.
Spray bar from the right side to the left side and a power head with diffuser making sure there is extra flow where the sand is... most poop gets pushed back towards the filter intake.
Normally during the day the power head is switched off and starts running after the the main lights in the tank went off.
used to want to kill my yellow she did and today i threw her in with him and they paired after trying to get them to get along when i first got mr yellow as a rescue. But thats another story lol heres my 3 bp
