In closing, the REAL Parrot Cichlid is a majestic cichlid of breathtaking beauty that I recommend to all advanced New World hobbyists well worth the trouble and expense to acquire and the difficulty and patience necessary to maintain and breed. That other Parrot Cichlid? That lipless mutant (they "ram-jet" feed, for God's sake!) of unknown hybrid origins (severum x red devil?). I say dealers and hobbyists alike should protest the creation of biologically-challenged monsters by avoiding them like the plague. I wish no harm to the poor creatures themselves, they obviously are not at fault. But we as a group should register our displeasure at such obvious attempts to "make a buck at all costs" by boycotting the sale of this fish and be sure to tell our dealers exactly why. Regrettably, the hybrids seem to be popular, particularly as their price declines. Hopefully, their obvious deformities imply sterility and aquarists will not be able to continue to produce them. In the meantime, the Real Thing is available.

A recent phone conversation provided the impetus for writing this article. I was happily peddling captively-spawned, tank-raised to a dealer as trade-bait. I was quite proud of having finally spawned this rare and beautiful blackwater cichlid and thought he'd jump at the chance to have some for sale in his shop. The pause on the other end of the line was deafening. "You mean that pretty orange-red thing, the Bloody Parrot?" he inquired. "No, the REAL Parrot Cichlid, the turquoise-green one," I snapped. Pregnant pause. "No, thank you" came his icy reply. I was crushed! The fish was quite rare, and a successful spawning rarer still. At that instant I decided that the aquarium hobby (with a 50% turnover annually) needed a re-introduction to this magnificent cichlid. parrot cichlids – Aquarium Fish For Sale

These great fishes who were first created in Taiwan are very beautiful as appearance. So you want to feed some fishes breeds, you can try them for your aquarium. There are some parrot cichlid breeds. The most well known is blood cichlid.

İnformation: Blood parrots are often bright orange in coloration, but there are other colors that they can have naturally, such as red or yellow. Other colors may be produced by dyeing the fish, which can shorten life expectancy. Some fish have been injected with a colored dye by the breeder. As the press has brought this practice to light, the majority of fish stockists will no longer sell these modified fish. Adult fish can grow to a length of 8 inches (20 centimeters) and reach an age of 10 years or older.
Genetic: As a result of inbreeding, the fish have several anatomical deformities, including a beak-shaped mouth that cannot fully close, which they compensate for by crushing food with the throat muscles.
