Blood Parrot Cichlids
Photo by Suvinay Jain 2010

Here are two blood parrot cichlids, housed in a tank in India. Though the tank is underdecorated, it is appealing. Notice the two sponge filters in the corners of the tank. It is also important to note that the blood parrot cichlid is one of the fish that is often dye injected to make a more colorful fish. Unfortunately, this often results in the fish having a number of health problems and dying young. The bright red-orange coloration of these two fish indicate that they may have been dyed or painted, but that could be the lighting. The natural coloration for these fish is a pinkish color that people may describe as "coral" or "salmon."
