Is my Parrott male or female?

Male or Female

smileyNow, I know to identify the gender of a parrot fish you must vent them, which I am not to keen on doing for the fish's safety and we'll being (I'm not an expert fish handler) and was wondering if there is any other possible way of finding the gender of my parrot, Teeto. I believe that "he" is a boy but am not quite sure. He is very agressive which leads me to believe that he is male but then again, I'm not sure.

The other Parrot is female

In my past posts I talked about my female parrot going through the whole egg laying process without delivering eggs. She paired off with a male at first that I had to return to the pet store a while back because he became really aggressive. Then she paired off with what at the time I didnt know if it was a male or another female. The other fish hung out with my female Parrot going through the motions and then going their seperate ways once my female either laid eggs and ate them right away or just went through the whole process but just never laid eggs I dont know I never saw eggs.

Which (if any) are less aggressive, male or female?

I'm looking to purchase 3 blood parrots probably next week, but before I do, I want to know that everyone will coexist happily. So I wondered if I should get all three the same sex, or how that should work.


Hello.....My Parrots has laid eggs twice this month .......No Babies....Should just take the male out the tank...They breed like twice a month ....What I need to do? I had them for about 4 years......

Gender Identification

Hello everyone,
I have just purchased two BP's I should have taken all three when I got them but I didn't. I would like to know how you determine their gender, the two that I have look different but are the same size I believe they are very young because they are about two and a half inches long they are small about the size of those bugeyed goldfish anyway I love them.

i am a newby to parrot cichlids

i am a newby to parrot cichlids. i bought two parrots and i would like to know how to tell if they are male or female. Could someone tell me how to determine this? They are so cute, i luv them. 

New to these awesome cichlids!

Hello Everyone!!!! Just joined the club and just go two new Red Parrot Cichlids. I have only had them for about 5 days but i think they are awesome!! I dont know if they are male or female if someone could tell me a way they found successful in sexing them that would be great since i know it is hard too. However, i was wondering how long i could keep my two cichlids Ben and Alex in the 10 gallon i have them in now.

How to tell the difference?

Hi i was wondering if anyone could tell me how to tell if a blood parrot is a male or female?


I have three Parrot fish that I  have had for about 3 months now. One is a jellybean and the other two are parrots. Can someone tell me hhow to tell the sex of them? I would really appreciate it. When we bought them, we weren't informed that they were cichlids, and they told us that they were very peaceful. We haven't had any problems out of them, they are in a tank with mollies and loaches. It seems that as long as they have plenty of hiding places, they are ok with other fish. I have rock in my tank, and each one of the Parrots have their own space.
