"We started out with 4Blood Parrots (someone gave to us) over 3 years ago. At the time these where the only fish in a 35 gallon tank. You would not believe how many we have now!! I place a ceramic frog in the tank that is commonly used for holding a brillo pad, when I noticed some where after the first year or so of having the fish the smallest one which has only one eye...was hanging out in the ceramic frog's mouth. Another one a much larger fish would swim around the ceramic frog constantly. When she would exit the frogy the other fish would go in and stay till she would return. I call the smaller one *she* because it turned out she was the female of the 2 Parrots. After a week or so I noticed what appeared to be alot of dirt floating in the tank. Upon investigating the dirt we noticed they were actually babies. Once they were hatched the ceramic frog got a very icky film on it. The very protective larger Blood Parrot would guard them from the other 2 Blood Parrots. He would guard 3/4 of the tank from the other 2 fish. So we removed the other 2 Blood Parots and put them in with our Goldfish and 2 Silver Dollars. Whom to this day are all still living happily in a 55 gallon reptile Aquarium. But for the fry that have grown greatly in the last year. Eventually we took the Father Blood Parrot out and place him in our Community Tank. We now have approx. 50 to 70 of them in a 35 tank. The mother is still living with them and still rules the roost of the Ceramic frog. We have not puyt the other 3 Blood Parrots back in the tank. The smaller ones are ranging in sizes from 1/2 in to 1 1/2. We are unsure if this is one litter of fish or several because of the difference in size in them. This is the first time we have ever had frys in any of our tanks. My fiancee' will not part with any of the Blood Parrots or their offsprings in fear he is getting rid of a fertile one. We have never fed them anything other than gold fish flakes and when the fry see you coming they know it is time to eat. thank you "
