They're in their breeding colors. Looks like the female is fat with eggs.

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.

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.
