Thanks dear OscarLoverJim :)

Actually my brother and I came to conclusion that this male fish can not fertilize the eggs, so, we changed it with another fish I really don't know the name. Literally can be translated into sth like: Monkey proboscis or snout monkey! I know you can guess it through the picture:





Anyway, I separated them for the few first days so that male fish gets used to the new environment. After I put them together, in spite of male fish's bigger size, didn't hurt the female parrot. but the day after he had hurt the point between her nose hole.

So separated them again and now I see that they both peck at each other on the separative glasses!
When do you suggest me to put them back together or what's the point for this pecking?

Thanks a lot.

I'm not sure you'll be able to. I don't know if they'll eventually establish a pecking order and not actually hurt each other but it seems they don't like each other much through the glass.

I've read somewhere that if they hurt each other time to time, you can separate them and they''ll learn they didn't have to be unkind to each other and then can be kept together and this should repeat and each time the time of separation decreases, till they really get used to each other or not totally.

So you suggest to put them together again? And what's the name of the white fish in English really?

Thanks.
