    Default Blood parrot babies, HELP

    ok so I notice my 2 bps are swarming in a corner, i go to look at tiny, not micro white egg things. i thought they might be pleco eggs, so my platys are trying to eat them, and the parrots ae getting mean. So i go to scatter them, and both parrots start to attack me, for not being able to shut there mouth they sure do pack a a bite. ok so as i write this, one is picking the eggs back up while the other is moving gravel around to make a nest i assume. so the big orange parrot also has um, a penis or somthing comming from near his bottem fin above his tail. not being pervert but not sure if it is penis or egg sack, to me it is a pretty big size to be a penis for a fish. what should I do, i dont want them to get mean, i dont want fish babies; but I feel bad watching them panic

    I'm pretty sure the males are infertile. The females will lay eggs and something could fertilise them if in the same species group / genus. Breeding behaviour is not uncommon and they will guard the eggs until they all get eaten.

    A bit sad really

    Go on youtube and you will find an abundance of blood parrot spawining videos. Not all are sterile, many parrots can spawn with convict cichlids, which proves they are infact able to produce viable sperm/eggs.

    However most blood parrots can't produce fry, but it can happen. So if they have another go they may be successful
