Parrot fish are sterile, however they still have the ability to lay eggs. The eggs just cant be fertilized.
I'm new to cichlids--and have three smallish ones in a 20 gal tank. I have two 20-40 aqua fin filters and two bubble stones. One of my cichlids is a BLOOD PARROT. I got him at a pet store and they didn't know anything about it. Previously I had fancy goldfish. Occationally the goldfish would change color depending on the atmosphere in the tank. now my BLOOD PARROT is showing black spots. I can't tell if the are outside the scales, or just the color of the scales changing. It is the largest fish in the tank--I also have an emerald cory catfish in the tank, but he doesn't seem to bother anyone.
Is my PARROT fish sick, fungused, icked? Help as this fish is my all time favorite.
