I had a pair of Dwarf Powder-Blues and they really were my favorites. They played a little game every day for their supper. I would walk up and say hi and they would come right over to me and blow bubbles at me and generally act adorable under my noise for a few minutes. They seemed very smart and always friendly and they got along together pretty well, although I find most fish get a little cranky as they age. It was so difficult to have these guys reach their life expectancies that I never got Dwarf Powder-Blues again, but I still think of them very fondly and remember them. Great fish, very special.

Got 5 of these guys in a smallish tank just for them, with a mopane bog wood root with a huge java fern stuck to it with a couple other plants up and a sump down full of more plants. The tank has a MILWAUKEE SMS122 pH/CO2 Controller so plants are always lush and the cylinders last forever because of the controllers... but back to these lovely fish... I looked in the tank one day last week and there, sitting pretty as can be is a 6th! A new baby the size of a small neon! I had no idea it had even been there obviously the dense java fern servered it well. Baby and 5 parents all doing great together.

Have 11 of these active and nice fish in my heavily planted 30 gallon. They are rambunctious dancers when they see their dinner coming and always hungry for more any time of night or day it seems. Their tank offers plenty of plants on a CO2 controller and a nice mopane bog wood root. Tankmates include two pearl gouramis and a handful of cories which they all mostly ignore in favor of thinking about food and feeding times and whether anyone walking by might have a morsel for them. Very nice to see that tank so lively again, those two particular pearls hide their lives away, so the blackskirts give the tank life now. Great fish, pleasure to have.

hello
I have had my Bloody Parrots now for almost 4 years. Well one is not with us anymore and so I got me one other one. Its so amazing how they know who is feeding then and who takes care of them. When it is feeding time they even jump out of the water just to get the first bite. They do not like other people and when we do have someone coming over they will hide. But they love my kids and me. Even when I just walk by they are on the top waiting.( I know its food they want. LOL) But I talk to them and watch them. They always pick on each other . Not in a hurtful way just pick here pick there. They are sure funny. Thanks for reading.

I have had my pleco for over 7 years. I enjoy watching him fly thru the tank and raise his huge dorsal fin. He is about 8" in length in my 29g aquarium. I would love to upgrade to a bigger aquarium for him but I am limited for space. People are always amazed at how big he is, they are kind of spooked but always ask questions. He loves to eat Romaine lettuce that I sink on a rock tied with a rubberband.
