#639 Cross Breeding

Thanks, But he is aggressive with any fish that enters the area, when Parrot does come out he might gently nudge it but no outward signs of aggression, Ya I guess we will find out in a couple of weeks for sure.

If the growth resembles cotton, kind of fluffy. it,s most likely cotton-wool disease. It's not contagious, caused by aggression loss of a scale or other small wound. It is a fungal growth and can be treated quite easily. If left untreated the growth will continue until it kills the fish. And it could'nt hurt to treat the entire tank. remember to remove the charcoal from your filter while medicating. You should get great results in about 5 days.

How long have they been in the tank ? What other kind of fish do you have ? And most importantly what is your ammonia-nitrate- ph levels If all not in normal range will eventually Kill all fish in tank. But if your other fish are o.k. then I would suspect your parrots are victims of aggression (explains hiding but not the labored breathing).

I have an adult male Gold Midas-(Red Devil) and a female Blood parrot that are displaying multiple signs of breeding. Including midas defending what I believe to be nesting sight. (hollow log closed at 1 end cave like. Parrot comes out briefly at night to feed never straying more than a couple of inches from log. Anyone know if inter-breeding of these two are possible?
