Parrot Feather

Parrot feather

Parrot feather grows partially above water, and below. This is one of those plants that I have an ample amount growing in my fish tank. This plant my fish clean house on. They say it does not have much nutritional value for the fish, but my fish like it, so my fish get it. It grows fast, upkeep not required, and it’s decretive in the pond.

Make sure the roots of the plants are covered with rocks, so your fish don’t eat them. Start with a large amount of the plant, so the heads of the leaves will surface the water. If some of the leaf is out of the water your fish won’t be able to eat the whole plant and it will still be able to get the sunlight it needs.

*Remember: your tilapia can eat!!!*

  2. Yes parrot feather is a nice aquatic plant to have in ponds. This is one of my favourite aquatic plants to place on the margins of a pond that grows in and amongst your rock work. It also is a great place for goldfish, koi and other types of fish to spawn.

    Great blog and keep up the great work!
