Red Parrot Cichlid laid eggs Angel fish is helping out!
 
Has anyone ever seen or heard of this....my red parrot has no mate but has laid eggs. Most of them are still clear in color and some are solid white. She chases all the others away including my one angel fish. However, every now and again I see the angel helping out with the eggs and the parrot is helping chase everyone else away. Will these eggs ever be able to hatch since there is no male? Or could my angel be a male and now there will be a cross between angels and parrots??? Help this was completely unexpected since I was always under the impression that parrots are infertile and can't reproduce. Any help would be appreciate.

What the hay come of this ? If the parrot did lay eggs and the angels gaurding them, hes simply made claim to the first live meal !
This much i've seen.
