    At the cost of someone elses misfortune, I got my 2 new Blood Parrots! A guy at my local club had his 250g (which was 7 days old, and obviously not very well made) blow out all over his lounge floor so he had a heap of fish to rehome in a hurry, including 2 Blood Parrots. Managed to get both for $70, which is a steal considering I paid $80 for my original parrot. Yes fish prices in New Zealand are crazy.

    I was worried my original parrot wouldn't except them as he always beats up the severums and he's a bit bigger than them, and I hovered around the tank like an anxious mother for an hour after I introduced them. I was pleasantly surprised! The 3 have now become inseparable. Severums are still enemy number 1 though.

    Two new kids! They are just so cute. The one at the back had been pretty badly roughed up by a Lionhead Cichlid he had been keeping it with. I'm sure with clean water he'll heal up pretty quick.


    Here's the wounded fellow.

    Wounded fellow again. I'm hoping his colour improves over time.


    Other guy.


    For good measure here's my original parrot. He wanted a photo too.


    Old parrot above trying to do... something. Shows off the size difference! They don't seem to mind though, they're getting along like a house on fire.

    Haha very excited!! Been wanting to get buddies from my parrot for ages as they are quite social but the ones in shops were all either TINY (like less than 2 inches compared to my 5 inch guy) or super expensive -- the only reason I ever had an $80 parrot in the first place was because he was a gift from my boyfriend.

    Slaphppy don't even tell me how cheap they are where you come from!! I don't wanna know!!

    EDIT: Thanks LadyGodiva! That makes me feel way better. Maybe I finally got one up on you USA-ers and your CHEAP prices! If I ever hear any of you complaining about something aquarium related being expensive I will come over there and slap you with a fish!

    Thanks guys! Update from last night... I'm 99% sure my original parrot and one of the new parrots have paired up. They've dug a big hole in the corner and are defending it from the severums and the other parrot.

    Kinda annoyed!! I just wanted them to all get along. Now the other poor little guy is being picked on.

    Well, so what is the solution now? More parrots?
    At least you wont have to bother with fry. Males are supposedly infertile.
