Since parrot cichlids are hybrids, their eggs are usually infertile. Successful spawns have occurred in aquariums, but the fry do not always grow up looking like their parents. Infertile eggs develop an opaque white fungus are usually get eaten within a few days. Fertile eggs are translucent. They hatch in about a week, and the parents mouth brood their eggs/fry.

Some aquarists have second thoughts about hybrid, dyed and genetically engineered aquarium fish.

They have darkened up which I believe means they are infertile, very few Parrots are fertile as they are crosses, I would remove them as they will rot and cause you problems.

In one week the eggs hatch and requires 25% water change daily to maintain the health of eggs.

One of the Parrot parents would normally gaurd them and fight off an intruder. Females will spawn without a male present and I do not know if you have a viable/fertile male? Generally speaking you would leave the eggs alone and they will hatch in about 4 days if they are fertile. Moving them will do no good. Sorry for the loss. Odds are they were not fertile.

If they are fertile they can hatch in 3 to 6 days. If infertile the color will turn more white and in some cases the edges of the eggs become fuzzy looking. This is fungus and it is best to remove the eggs. Hope this helps.
