Good morning,

Below is an updated photo of my 265g tank. It has the new terracotta pots on the right hand side. All of my ornaments are terracotta now.
Hope you like it!

Ken

Thanks Shawnie,

lol you know them too well! It was a fiasco as to who was going to sleep in the new pots last night Now it's a race as to who is going to spawn first. Some of the females have already been inside them cleaning house

The males just watch and look handsome and show off.

Ken

Thanks Nick!

Ken -- do you have to clean the tera cotta items in any special way before you put them in the pots? I have a few I bought over the weekend, but did't want to put them in without checking on here first.

The new pots look fabulous! And they're safer for the SD's.

You're such a great fish dad!

Thanks folks!

Jenifer, I only rinse the terracotta pots in warm water and then place them in the tank. I only use new ones. They will bubble for a while and once all the pores are filled the bubbles stop.

Depending on the size pots you have, you may want to consider closing the hole in the bottom with a rock so no one gets stuck

Thanks again! I appreciate the kind words.

Ken

I like the way they "age" in the tank...... it really makes it look natural. My favorite tank layout.

I agree Lynda. I never clean any of the terracotta other than the body of the snail. Everything else I let age.

Thanks Phishyitis,

My largest Bloody Parrot is 9x6.5. I have 3 of them close to that size. The others are a little smaller (but still large) and younger and there are two I still consider to be juveniles.
