How minimize aggression between Parrot fishes

Postby Subha92 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 2:17 pm

I've four Parrot fishes out of which two(one red and one yellow) have excellent bonding between each other. The well bonded pair used to chase the rest two continuously. I've tried all the know method to distribute the aggression among all, but I've failed to do so. I've already tried the switching off the light for over 1 day, Messing with the decorations so they don't have territories. One of my Parrot fish (Red) has already injured its tail. He also has some black stress marks on his belly. The other yellow one is also seems to be under stress all time. He has also some sign of black stress marks on his fins.

Now please help me out from this issue. I can't rehome them even I can't give some one else who have a tank. Anyway, I have to keep them in my tank. Currently I can't afford another tank. So please suggest something. I've only one Divider. If I put two weaker together or divide them from the aggressive pair, they will start fighting with each other. I'm totally confused. Please suggest me something good way to make them all peaceful. I know the nature are not to be peaceful but wish at least not to bullying like this. Image

If i were you buddy, I would never have bought such hybrid fishes in the first place. The only solution i see is to provide more hiding places.

I don't know, why you guys are against this beautiful fish! Hybrids are the simple thing in nature. The plants we are seeing nowadays are the result on hybridization. We (human) are also the result of hybridization. That's why the apes are not evolving to produce human anymore. Because we have make a distinct trait than the apes. We are actually the result of hybridization. So what is the problem with this fishes?

I'm also against the culture of those fishes which are artificially coloured or have abnormal shapes (heart shape body). But the fishes I have is neither artificially coloured nor been shaped by cutting the tails. I only have the Red and Yellow coloured fishes. Which are naturally occurring species. These fishes have some deformities and I'm trying to take care of this. Please guys don't discourage people with your negative comments. Let me clear the thing again, that I'm also against those fish keeper as well as breeders who buy or sell this fishes with different shapes and colours.

Do You know that the Arawona, Goldfish, Betta and so many well known fishes are there in market which is also hybrid in nature and the hybridization is done so precisely that you can't even detect it. They are done just only to make a good trait like colour, body size, fin shapes, scale colours etc. So never judge a fish just for being a hybrid. Love your fish the most whatever it is.

Arowana, goldfish, betta etc are not hybrid but it is called selective breeding from a original natural occurring fish and hybrid is which are man made fish which does not occurs naturally and are quite a bit fragile. Some people love hybrid and some people don't here in KAC people don't support them and everyone have their views go to mfk they have a section for hybrid fishes.

You don't have any idea of hybridization. The selective breeding is a type of Hybridization. Ask any one, who is a biologist before making such comments.

You can say the Blood parrots are intentional hybrids but that doesn't mean that they are bad fishes. You may have some point of view. You may not support me but that doesn't mean that you can hate those fishes. Hate me but don't hate those. ;)

One more thing, Blood Parrots are not man made fishes. They have not been created in vitro. They are simple cross breeding products.
