Parrot Fish pregnant?

HELP! My parrotfish which i assume is a female because of this whtie tube thing sticking out but then today when i got home, it was logner than usual, and shes attacking anyone who comes near the claypot. And she also seems to be like spinning around in the clay pot like doing something to do but not sure. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?

btw, she is unfertilized since all i got in the tank with her is a Green Terror, Oscar, Crayfish, Common, and 2 Plecos.

Well first to thing to know is parrot fish are hybrids. But they do lay eggs some times nothing will happen though. Parrot fish come from breeding a red devil and midus together.

Usually the eggs will come out of the tube and the tube will go back in.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
