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.

well yea i know that but when she lays the eggs will the tube fall off or go back in?

UPDATE: Her color are very pale right now, like light pink and her top fins are like out of the water, does anyone know why?

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