    Does anyone have experience with parrots and live plants? will they destroy the plants or can they live in peace with them.. tank size would be 55-75g

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Mine has only live plants in its tank, never seen it trying to chew on the leaves or dig. Maybe if the parrot in question has a functional mouth (unlike mine) it could do some damage but they don't seem like hardcore plant eaters like African cichlids and such.

    If they can get the leaf or part of the plant into their deformed mouth the second set of jaws they have can chew it up. However thicker leaved plants and ones that are wider across will prevent this.
