Yipes, sorry for the technical problems!!

I am very sorry!!!

A new spam filter was malfunctioning and I did not notice
right away because the site seemed to be up and looking normal - unless
you looked at the date! I've set it so that if it malfunctions again, it simply goes away, NOT blocks everything on the site!! I didn't notice right away because the site seemed to be up and looking normal, until I took a close look at the dates on the posts.

Update: I'm adding a new spam blocker to the site

Well we were lucky for a long time, and had very little spam, but now apparently spam is increasing. So I have re-instituted spam protection. What it means for you is that when you click "Submit" on a comment or post, you will see a "captcha" form, asking you to type some letters. If you get them wrong you can try again. When you type them correctly, it will send your post through.
It's a little more inconvenient but will help keep things neat around here.

On my other site, I get hundreds a day sometimes, so I shouldn't complain!

Fiddler Crabs

Hi,I thought this was a little off topic for the forum, but ParrotCichlidGirl said to post it anyway so I wanted to see
if you would know if a fiddler crab gets out of its cage, how can you
lure it out of hiding.  They have been fine until last night they were
all laying around the cage slowly moving around and then this morning
one was missing.  I had them on the end of my island in my kitchen and
I have looked high and low and can't find her.  Any ideas

  • First and foremost - do NOT use Safari or Chrome for this site at this time. I hate to say that but for the moment it is NOT working with this editor module. Grrr! Anyway, please use Firefox or IE.
  • Click the green square. upload image icon
  • A little window will come up. Look on it for  a button that says "CHOOSE FILE". 
  • Click that, and browse to your images folder in your computer. Select an image and click "CHOOSE".

Testing on Safari

The new toolbar allows you to change text styles and colors and upload images.It may not work in Safari or Chrome. On the other hand, this was posted in Safari, so I think it works as long as you don't switch back and forth between the fancy new editor and  "Plain Editor".

New message and image tools

At Shaz's suggestion, I've added a new feature to the message posting functions. You'll see a toolbar when you post your messages, and it allows images to be inserted.

[Edited by PCG - Link is no longer valid 01-19-11]

A new forum has opened for Blood Parrot Enthusiasts and their friends to share information and help. Obviously it's a new site, so your input would be greatly appreciated in building a community that all blood parrot fans can use and enjoy.

We really look forward to see you there....

Kind regards

Team Blood Parrot.

I'm testing a new gallery concept. Need volunteers to test!

Hi all, I'm trying a new gallery concept based on Flickr sets. I need people to try it and let me know if it is worth pursuing.

Go to

This Page

and try to follow the directions. Each of you can make as many gallery pages as you like. You must have a Flickr account to use it, though.

worrysome coloring on blood parrot

I have worked in a petstore for a while and have watched blood parrots and they are by far my favorite fish. I see them start at a dark grey or black color and transform into a beautiful orange. However for some reason my newest (Tang) has kept his black on his upper half and has not changed his coloring in over 6 months (besides pinkening for mating time)

Let's try this again!

I have a 44 gallon tank. In it I have 1 small catfish, 3 white clouds, 1 cardinal, 9 tetras and a platy. I would love to get a BP. I just fell in love with them in the store. They made me smile every time I watch them. Anyway, I was wondering if I should get one or two of them. I have no plans on upgrading my tank. I'm thinking I should just get the one but I don't know if they would be lonely. Would one be less aggressive than if I got two of them? Would they prefer a companion? Would they get along with the fish I already have or should I give some of them to my daughter?

A guide to aquarium accessories and fish care

A trip to your local pet shop or aquarium centre will show you that there are a lot of aquarium products out there. Of course, not all of these products are necessary.

Included in the must-have items for an aquarium is a water filter. A water filter is essential to ensure your fish always have clean water. Even if your aquarium water looks perfectly clean, it is still possible that it has been infected with chemicals or dirt which could easily harm your fish, but this is easily solved with an aquarium filter.

need a new home for parrot cichlids in L.A/Pasadena

We have two big (4-5inch) very healthy red parrot cichlids in our 100 gallon tank which also houses a variety of cichlids and a few others. The two parrots get along with each other very well but not so much with the other cichlids (we just had a new batch of fry, currently separated but who will return soon) and we would like to find them a new home if possible. I know I could just put this on craislist but would like them to go to someone who knows/wants parrot cichlids vs. someone saying "cool, free fish" :) I can send pictures via email (or figure out how to post them here).
