I bought a baby blood parrott about 4 months ago and then a second (not as young) before I knew that their mouths and other parts can be problematic for them. I am trying to give them the best life I can even with their hybrid difficulties. Last night I came home and walked towards the tank and the larger of the two was acting quite strange. The longer I watched the stranger I felt it's behaviour was. It acted as if it were scared of me and darted about the tank it went tail first up the castle towards the top of the tank. Then it was making large circles around the tank and then diving in to the gravel almost digging a hole behind a cave. After hitting the gravel it would dart toward a fish Any fish closeby and bite them and then circle around again and crash into the gravel (head first) again and so on. Haning never seen it act this way I was quite intrigued. I can only think that thid is some sort of spawning behaviour or something? Could this be true? Also when I bought the baby one it was grey and the man told me it would go through a series of colour changing before becoming red/orange if I fed it the colour enhancing food and bloodworms. He said it was possible for the fish to turn blue or purple or green rather than red but that was rare. I have heard since that they are dyed pretty colours!?! Mine are still yellow but their gills are peachy-pink, and the large one has some black markings around the edge of his fins. What is indeed the the truth? :?
