The Parrot Cichlid is also known as the Blood Parrot Cichlid. This fish is a hybrid that was created in Taiwan by man in the 1980s. It is believed that the first of these fish was created by mixing a Gold Severum and a Red Devil. They grow to 5-6 inches , and generally thanks to the shape of there mouth and fins are timid fish. They will eat most any foods readily that they can get into there mouth. We recommend these fish for South American Cichlid tanks or for large fish community aquaria.
