Parrot cichlids are egg layers and will prepare a smooth flat surface just as most other cichlids do. The female will lay eggs and the male will proceed to fertilize them. The only problem with male parrot cichlids is that most of them are born sterile and have no capability to reproduce. So once every few months the pair of parrot cichlids will go through the act of spawning without ever having a brood to show for. Some aquarium fish breeders will inject parrot cichlids with hormones to help upsurge fertility; it is an unreliable technique since it only works some of the time. It has been recorded that the female parrot cichlids can be bred with other species of cichlid males to produce successful spawning which is probably why there are so many different types of parrot cichlid varieties available.

Came to see acrylic tank manufacturing hoping to see some of the stars of the show and wasn't disappointed, got to see Redneck hard at work. Would recommend booking a tour ahead of time, if you want to see more then just from the gift shop. Pretty cool to see some of the tanks, fish and even parrots you would see on the show, don't expect to be here long, but expect to be amazed with the beautiful tanks they create!

The history of Red Parrot has witnessed great successes in breeding techniques of Red Parrot. From its emerging stage as just a rare ornamental fish with not enough supply to be classified on the market, to a mass production of super large sized Red Parrot. This made me keep wondering whether we will encounter more miracles of fascinating new hybrid fish that will continue to marvel the aquatic world.

There’s its diet, which consists primarily of algae extracted from chunks of coral ripped from a reef. The coral is pulverized with grinding teeth in the fishes’ throats in order to get to the algae-filled polyps inside. Much of the sand in the parrotfish's range is actually the ground-up, undigested coral they excrete.Finally, there are the pajamas. Every night, certain species of parrotfish envelope themselves in a transparent cocoon made of mucous secreted from an organ on their head. Scientists think the cocoon masks their scent, making them harder for nocturnal predators, like moray eels, to find.
