Default Fish tank and parakeets in same room?

Is it safe to have parakeets in the same room with a fish tank? I let them out all day and was wondering if it's safe to keep them in the same room as a fish tank. The fish tank has a cover but it has a hole for the filter and one for feeding. Just wondering if it's safe.

If the openings on the fish tank are small enough to ensure the safety of a more curious budgie (as in not allow the budgie to squeeze inside), then it should be fine. Especially if these holes are filled by the normal equipment that goes for the maintenance of the tank and fishes.

The filter hole has the filter in it but the one for feeding is open obviously to feed them I don't know if they will fit but I think it's possible if they actually try. And they sure are curious budgies they explore anything they can. I once left the closet ajar and they ended up exploring the closet

If the opening for feeding is large enough to present a danger for your budgies, then you will have to find a way to block the opening to the fish tank or either move the tank or your budgies to a different room for out of cage time.

I agree with Ana. You will need to ensure any openings into the fish tank are securely covered if you plan to have the tank in the same room when the budgies have out-of-cage time.

I might just cover the feeding hole in order to prevent them from falling in.

Yes, that would solve the issue.
You can keep the opening functional only during your fishes' mealtimes and when you are done with feeding them, you can then have the hole covered.
It's important to have this as part of a routine in order to avoid a potential accident from happening.
For example, you can check the tank before allowing your budgies out of cage time just to be extra safe.

It should be fine. I recently rehomed my fish and tank, but I have had them for some time and so long as you have a basic cover and a slight opening at the back for filtration, having it in the same room is fine.

Note: If your budgies are a bit more curious than mine are, and the tank is large like say 30 Gallons up, then ensure that you cover with cage mesh any openings. Your fish tank still needs to breathe which is important otherwise your ammonia levels will increase and put your fish at risk. Using wire mesh (small square holes and cut to fit) to cover existing areas will allow the tank to breathe and provide safety in knowing that if your little critters are curious and want to go for a dip or drink that they DON'T end up in the DRINK. Just sayin'...
