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.
