hi
looks like they could be preparing to breed perhaps ? :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community

55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT

It could take them several weeks before they're successful if this is their first time. The divider is a must. Heck, a completely nonporous divider would be best, as I can see the parrots sucking the krib fry through divider holes.

How are you sure your parrots aren't dyed? Most of the regular orange/red ones are dyed as well, not just the more strange colors.

they are definately spawning, bright red, fat belly tells it all... mine always ate their eggs and when they finally let some hatch the fry only lasted a couple days before being eaten :/ definately divide them, being chased will stress them out.

14gallon(heavily planted)- 1 Blue Ram, 5 Green Tiger Barbs, 1
Spotted Raphael Catfish, 1 Bumble Bee Catfish, 2 Golden
Chinese Algae Eater
1gallon- Blue/Orange Betta-male
Large Vase #1- Blue/Yellow Betta-male
Large Vase #2- Blue/Black Betta-male

hello and welcome.
congratulations on the fry :)
you could inquire at the LFS (local fish store) if they would be interested in the fry,
or you could advertise them on here.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
