Blood Parrot Cichlid



The Blood Parrot Cichlid, or more commonly and formally known as Parrot Cichlid; is a hybrid of the Midas and the Redhead Cichlid. The fish was first created in Taiwan around 1986. Because this hybrid Cichlid has various anatomical deformities, controversy exists over the ethics of creating the Blood Parrot. One of the most obvious deformities is its mouth, which has only a narrow vertical opening. This makes blood parrots somewhat harder to feed and potentially vulnerable to malnutrition.

Blood Parrot Cichlids should not be confused with other Parrot Cichlids or saltwater Parrotfish, of the family Scaridae.
