Caring for a Blood Parrot Cichlid Fish

A hybrid of different, unknown South American cichlids, the blood parrot was first introduced in the mid-1980s. Like many other South American cichlids, these fish are fairly shy and docile with the right tank mates. Their care requirements are also similar to that of other South American cichlids.

Flowerhorn cichlid. Flowerhorn Cichlid are the result of hybridization between different South American cichlids. I've had cichlid tanks before. These make me want to have them again. The head protuberance is called a nuchal hump, and is a highly desirable trait in fish in some countries.
