View Full Version : What the.....?!?!

So I'm passing by the fish room and I see Pinky my blood parrot is spawning! Laying her eggs on the piece of slate! And right behind her is Tex yup, right behind her......eating every single egg. :c11:

Pinky seems confused. She keeps going to that piece of slate and starts to fan it, then it kind of dawns on her that there isn't anything there and she swims away.

I don't know if the texas is too young to spawn or maybe just inexperienced. Could be that he just isn't getting the right 'cues' from her.

This is going to be harder than I thought!

i'm sorry to hear that.
same happened to my red devils about 1 months ago. guess the male was inexperienced or too young.
i used a flower pot so the female was able to stay in there and not let the male come in. however after one day just a few eggs remained and female ate them herself.

What a stinker he is. She does all the work and he grabs the treats. He'll figure it out soon.

Maybe I'll change his name to Stinker! :ezpi_wink1:

At least they get along good together so that is something!

Hmm! Caviar!

Congrats on the spawn. Hope that texas cichlid gets his actt together, otherwise, you may consider marrige conseling.
