This listing is for THREE adult Blood Parrot Cichlids (suspected 2 males and 1 female). These fish were surrendered to us together, and we are looking to sell them as a group. They are currently living in a 150-gallon aquarium that they share with guppies and large common plecos.

The Blood Parrot Cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus x Paraneetroplus synspilus) is an interesting and popular hybrid species of cichlid. They are highly sought-after for their round orange bodies, generally peaceful disposition, triangular-shaped mouths, and large size. 

While these cichlids can be aggressive towards other fish species in too-small aquariums, they tend to do very well with other fish species given enough space. As their mouths are rather small, they generally have a difficult time hunting small-to-medium.

Blood Parrot Cichlids are omnivores that should be fed a varied and diverse diet for the best colouration and health of the animal. We recommend alternating between high-quality flakes and (small) sinking pellets (such as the Omega One lines "Super Color Flakes", "Super Color Sinking Pellets", and "Super Color Veggie Pellets"), and live or frozen foods such as bloodworms, spirulina brine shrimp, blackworms, and cut-up earthworms or beefheart.
