In order to get eggs out of my BRP, I do a huge water change and peas and giant mealworms for food--she lays every time.

I agree.:wink2: I simply won't encourage hybridizing pure strains of fish because they tend to decimate the stocks of pure strains. But it's a matter of personal choice unfortunately.:dunno:

Good luck with the breeding. By the way, hi and welcome aboard, Pouyan.:wave:

Welcome to the board, I personally don't see anything wrong with it and think it would be awesome if you did get them to breed! Keep us all updated, I'm interested to see your results!

i'm gonna gave to go with blue and jojo on this one. theres just something wrong about hybrids and having a hybrid breed with another fish is even worse. makes the genetics even more messed up.

THX dear Alexis-dprUsh83-jojoyojimbi&Blue
I knew that this action can decimate the genetic parts and chains and making some kind of abnormal things in defense sys of fish..cause I have alittle doubt that midas and parrot fish accept them..and i like to do this work for myself and see the baby of this hybring .
