She has come around. If I make any sudden movement it still freaks her out, but now she is out and about. Thanks again for all of your help and thanks for the comments!

Thanks! I had a bad dream about her colors last night, I had a dream she turned out being a dyed Jellybean BP. Hehe... I'm paranoid...

She's very pretty and looks like she's digging her new home.

Here's my kids. Very funny they are. One swims to the other side of the tank and the other rushes right over there too. They are inseparable.

They looks great hobbs. I hope mine stay as colorful as yours.

My GBRs arrived today. They are warming up to the tank. I was in a bit of shock when I picked them up though. I asked the pet store to call me when the arrived. I called them about the time they arrived. They said they wouldn't put them in their tanks at the store and they didn't. They arrived via cargo truck with the rest of the stores stock, but the bag was filty dirty, they were pale in color, and I could tell they did not like being in the bag. I got them home and I could tell they were stressed out from the trip. I am leaving the lights off the rest of the evening, but I can't wait to see how they turn out. A few of them, even with the lights off I can tell are well developed.

Good for you. They will be fine and start coloring up in some clean water and the stress removed from them.

There's no reason for them to fade at all and your parrot should hang onto the color he has now. I had just cleaned the tank when I took that pic so the one is faded a bit more now than usual. He goes from a dark gold to a burnt orange. When stressed, he fades out a bit but color returns in minutes. At spawning time, he becomes almost red.

I'd like two more myself but I just don't know how my guys would take to others.

When I get a larger tank, I would like to get another one. My BP is just so full of personality.

hobbs, you mentioned that you've seen them spawn. Could you list some of the things your parrots do when they spawn, mine have been acting a little differently lately but im not sure if its anythin.
