  1. Default Blood Parrots laying eggs

    My blood parrots have been laying eggs every 4 days or so for the last couple weeks!!! It's a shame the male is sterile because they are laying massive amounts of eggs. Free snacks I guess for the other fish in the tank.

    How warm is their water? That's a lot of spawns. Mine just got done Monday but now won't spawn again for awhile. I only have 1 female to 4 males, tho.

    Now I know that BP males are sterile but something I have searched for and not found out is why? If they are a cross breed to make the fish, why does that automatically make the males sterile?
    FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

    There is the theory on the BPs being intentionally made sterile by shady overseas market protection practices, but I have no idea if that is true or not. I also read from time to time remarks about successful breedings, meaning non-sterile males, but again I have seen no evidence. They are a weird fish to find any sort of truth about.
