Blood Parrot Cichlids can be very interesting fish, but even more than a decade after their introduction to the pet trade there is still controversy surrounding these fish. And that's available even for specimens that, like this one, have not been injected with dye! Since these fish are deformed, they can have trouble competing for food or avoiding aggressors, and with their own aggressive nature, finding suitable tank mates can often be a challenge.

"Your site must be the most comprehensive Beginners' Guide to Aquariums on the internet. I have found it extremely useful and wish I had known of it before I had started, it would have saved me time and money. I will be passing the link on to all my friends that have tanks or anyone I know that is considering it."
