can you show us your aquarium? :0 do your birds like looking at the fish?
We recently redid the whole thing, the fish were inherited when my girlfriends father passed away. They were in an octagonal tank with neon rocks, bright plastic plants and orange sealant so we got them a new tank and entirely new decor (aside from the skull, that’s the only thing from the original tank). There were only four tetras or so, not enough to form a proper school so we got some more tetra friends to help them feel safer/ less stressed. The old tank didn’t have an established cycle initially so we had the task of starting up a cycle in that tank then just transferring the filter media in to this one (the cycle didn’t crash in the process thank the lord!). It’s been a bit of a task but we’re getting the rhythm a bit and getting better at it every day.
The girls love them, Mia will fly over and sit on the desk, get all nice a poofy, tuck her foot in and just sit there watching the tetras zip about.
Zeeby likes to try to nest under the tank (which we do our best to stop her from doing) and eat the tetras, her and the betta like to have face offs, she’ll sit there with her beak open trying to act all high and mighty, betta just floats above her flaring until they get bored and split. So far it doesn’t seem to be stressing either of them out or causing heightened aggressive behaviour so we’re just keeping an eye on those two.
I don’t know a whole ton about fish, just the basics to keep them the healthiest I can so if anyone’s got some good resources or tips I’d love to hear them! we want to do the best we can for these fish but we are still learning!
