Impossible to tell.

Blood parrots when first introduced were all infertile, ie they could lay eggs but they would never hatch. They now though are fertile and capable of producing fry.

Keep a close eye on the eggs and if you notice any sort of white fuzz growing on them, remove them immediately as they are dead.

Hope it works out for you!

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
