What type of parrots? Blood parrots?

Blood parrot males are infertile. They will try to fertilize the eggs and the pair will try to mate for as long as you keep them together but you will not get fry. If you do then its not a blood parrot (or its a blood parrot crossed with something else). Its nothing specific with your fish, its a result of crossing too many fish that are not similar enough together to create the man-made fish known as the blood parrot.
