JellybeanParrot Cichlid

The blood parrot cichlid is a hybrid cichlid. The fish was first created in Taiwan  around 1986. Its parentage consists of the Midas cichlid and the red head cichlid. Blood parrots are often bright orange in coloration, but there are other colors that they can have naturally, they range from basic pale or bright yellows, to oranges and reds. Dyed fish sport purples, pinks, blues, and more colors. Adult fish can grow to a length of 8–10 inches (20–25 centimeters) and reach an age of 10 years or older. Blood parrots are hardy and may be housed by enthusiasts singly, in schools, or with complementary species under a variety of conditions. The fish are voracious eaters and generate significant uneaten debris during feeding. High volume filtration and frequent substrate suctioning is recommended to minimize nitrates.  The Blood Parrots are a peaceful, shy fish that should not be kept with real aggressive tank mates. However, if you keep them in a community aquarium with similar sized fish, be aware that they can be territorial. They like an aquarium with lots of rock formations and caves for retreating and hiding. Plants are not essential though they do not harm them.
