36 Gallon Bowfront
2x Juvie Blood Parrots
2x Platinum Parrots
2x Juvie Pictus Catfish (store recommended over loaches and cory cats)
Originally had just the 1 blood parrot, 2 platinum parrots, and 1 pictus. The blood parrot and pictus were both getting majorly bullied by the platinums. My blood parrot would hide on the side of the floating driftwood (that's been a fun discovery in itself) and the pictus was swimming up and down at the top of the tank.
Got an additional blood parrot and pictus to try to pair them up. The original blood parrot became more social almost instantly. But now I have two pictus cats that don't realize they are supposed to be bottom dwellers. They both will stay at the top of the tank. Water parameters are solid aside from slightly high CH. If the pictus don't calm down with the parrots, probably moving them to another 20 gallon tank I have for now.
So, I'll be exploring getting driftwood to stay sunk, what's going on with the pictus cats, and the best methods to lower CH along with whatever else pops up. Thanks for having me!
