While many aquarium hobbyists are familiar with blood parrot cichlids, many do not realize that this species does not occur naturally. The two real parrot cichlid species are Hoplarchus psittacus and Hypsophrys nicaraguensis, though the latter is more commonly called the Nicaragua cichlid. True parrot cichlids are fairly rare in the aquarium hobby, but the blood parrot cichlid is widely available, known for its deep red-orange color and the distinct beak-like shape of its face. Because they are a man-made species, blood parrot cichlids have no scientific name. These fish have been bred with other species to create color variants such as the purple heart parrot cichlid and bubblegum parrot cichlid.

One-Heart Blood Parrot Fish This One-Heart Blood Parrot Fish (also known as cichlasoma var) was displayed at Taipei Sea World in 2004. His whole body's a heart, and bright red to boot.Blood Parrots, being severely deformed, are seenas being crippled and disease-prone. The deformed spine and spinebladder makes Blood Parrots more prone to swimming disorders, and thebeak-like mouth cannot chew food properly. A variety called the HeartParrot Cichlid lacks a tail fin, and can barely swim at all. OneBritish fishkeeping magazine revealed that some Blood Parrots havetheir tails cut off specifically to produce this heart shape, thoughhow common this practise is remains unclear.There is also a variety of Parrot Cichlid that is quite odd. (As if they aren't odd enough!!) This type is tailless. It's called the "Love Heart" parrot due to its heart-like shape. It's available in both the red and the purple variety. We keep one of these, and despite his missing appendage, he can hold his own in a scuffle and swim as fast as the others in the tank. This is a really unique fish, and tailless trend must be catching on. We are starting to see Discus produced with the missing tail also.Blood Parrot Cichlid- another adorable fish, looks like they have chubby cheeks! Some compatible fish for the Blood Parrot Cichlid or Purple Heart Cichlid includes Severum, Geophagus, Threafin Cichilds, Giant Danio, Congo Tetra, Roseline Sharks, Rainbow fish, and small mouthed catfish. Sometimes it is ok to mix in Angelfish, Swordtails and Silver DollarsBlood Parrot Cichlid- another adorable fish, looks like they have chubby cheeks!

There are exceptions to any rule as you know but generally speaking BP's have no trouble swimming, or with their swim bladder, they have no trouble eating anything, nor are they shy about eating, they are more docile than their red devil parents but can be very aggressive especially when breeding. Mine has drawn blood defending her eggs! They are thought to be hybrids of red devils and perhaps midas, cichlids but no one knows for sure. As with any hybrid most of them are mules but some are fertile and will breed with many other south american cichlids. BP's and convicts are the parents of jellybeans, and BP's and flowerhorns will give off the variety known as King Kong. These fish will get huge, up to 12" or so. BTW, most BP's will get to be about 6". Unfortunately these fish are targeted by many breeders for dyeing, and also for other in-bred mutations like! having no caudal fins or deformed fins (heart BP or bloody heart!), or deformed dorsal fins (unicorns).
