Photo Caption:Our Blood Parot Cichlid. I was told he would get reddish orange, and look like a killer goldfish, well he is close to a year old and hasnt changed to orange, just got darker. After doing some research, it seems i have an uncommon hybrid, hybrid. Apparently a blood parrot bred with a male convict cichlid, giving us a black blood parrot with stripes? Anyone know the truth to that or not?
