Jellybean parrots are quite small compared to blood parrots. They reach 4 inches max. Mine is only about 7 cm and he was able to mate with my albino convict.:dunno:mistergoodstuf said:jellybean parrot? is that like an albino blood parrot? my, what i assume is a blood parrot, isnt orange .. could i possibly have a jellybean parrot also? i have a tiger oscar, jack dempsey, knifefish, and a pleco in the tank with them
It is easy if you are prepared with foods. Buy liquid food designed for fry in your lfs. If not, try to cook a hard-boiled egg and remove the egg yolk, then suspend the egg yolk in the jar and get a medicine dropper. Squirt the food into the shoal of fry. Be careful not to overfeed. Feed them only when the fry are in free-swimming stage.mistergoodstuf said:i'll try to post pics up later .. but what should i do? is raising babies easy to do? i really want to see how they turn out i.e color pattern and shape
You have to remove them only when they are in free-swimming stage.mistergoodstuf said:how would i take them out? with something like a baster? would i put the parents in the tank with them too?
Where did you hear this "myth"?:squint: I doubt that's true.:dunno:mistergoodstuf said:is it true that if you take all of the fry out, the parents will become depressed and might not lay again?
Unless you can accommodate all the fry, I would just allow nature to take its course. Convicts are quite prolific and they can be pesky once their population increases rapidly.:blueshake:mistergoodstuf said:i heard it from this guy at my lfs .. i took out 75% if the fry and left the rest in the 100gallon tank .. should i take the rest out? would that be better for the other fish in the tank?
