Default Red Phoenix sterile?

Is the line bred Red Phoenix sterile. When I bought a friends tank he gave me these fish that I'm now trying to sell, i'm not a fan of them. I've since been told that they are sterile. Does anyone know if they are or not? Anyone bred them?

Thanks

Hello friends,



In Europe, they are acquaintances with the name of Red Bishop or Caramba Bishop!.



A video (of Youtube) of the Red Bishop / Caramba Bishop








A video (of Youtube) of Red Bishop / Caramba Bishop babys...







This variety is created by the human being, treats itself about a selection of Tropheus sp. black Caramba (Congo), as the Aulonacara First Fire (Malawi).



In my opinion, is artificial, not is natural!: S



Best regards,

Yeh I know they're a line bred fish and not a naturally occurring variant. Someone told me they are infertile and incapable of producing offspring. I was checking if there's any truth to this statement or if anyone has bred these fish.
I guess time will tell if no one buys these fish from me. They've been going through the breeding motions lately.

It looks like Angels second video shows that they are not infertile in general.

Hybridisation is very species dependent. A lot of fish are farm raised to be sterile for growth and eating purposes and it is accomplished by using triploids. Whoever created this fish did a good job for reproductive capabilities.
