I boil up some water then throw in some frozen spinach leaves and a brussel sprout, let them cook for a couple of minutes then pour a little cold water over them after I take them out then I cut them up into small pieces. In my tank are 4 silver dollars, 2 rainbow cichlids, 3 gouramis ( 2 gold, 1 opaline) 1 large tinfoil barb, 2 plecos and 3 Blood Parrots. 15 fish in a 55 gl. tank. When I put these cut up vegetables in the tank every one of my fish, ( except the plecos) race to the spot and frantically gobble up the offering! They all seem to love spinach and brussel sprouts lol!
I have my parrots for about 6 months, and are slowly learning they are picky eaters. I was feeding them small minnows, and red wigglers plus flakes, pellets. Now they are off & on about feeding on minnows? Any suggestions on live feeding would be appreciated.
My daughter's parrots are very young, and I've read that you shouldn't give them fruit because of cloudy water. I was wondering, her plecos love acorn and butternut squash, would that be good for parrots too? Also what other veggies are good for them. We have a frozen medley of brocoli, califlower and carrots, would any of those be ok and how should I go about giving them. Are they even old enough for something like that? They are quarter sized. They eat fish flakes, dried blood worms, freeze dried baby shrimp, nibble at the alge cakes and sometimes tubix cakes.
I have him alredy 1 month, he is 4in, and I am afraid to give him too much or too little, I feed him with pellets, those that floats,( I guess they have air inside) so the pellets don't sink in the bottom, 10 or 15 a day... is it ok????
I was doing some reading on using live foods but some said that you shouldn't use them often because of the fat content in them. I was wondering what is the best live food to feed them? And what is the best brand of dried food you guys have used? I know to feed them peas every week but I want them to have a variety in their food. I do have a 10 gallon tank that i could breed my own food in such as shrimp if that is good. My local store also sells frozen blood worms. So what is the best?
ok, my Bloody Parrots are abour 4-5 years old and i was wondering if i can gie them fresh fruit and, if so, wht fruits will they eat?
i am going to be away for 3 days this weekend. If i feed my baby BPs ( 3") on Friday night will they be okay until Monday night before being fed again? I was going to give them a good feeding of flake food ( they take from my hand now ) :) then leave some floating cichlid pellets and some sinking shrimp pellets before leaving.
Any thoughts? thanks
