The fact that you have 3 blood parrots kinda scares me. Blood parrots can grow to a minimum 5 inches. The general rule of thumb I used is atleast 40 gal
for one and an extra 30 gal
more for each additional one. That puts you at 100 gal
for a safe size tank with 3 blood parrots. I would stop adding fish and start thinking about going bigger.
