purple parrot X red texas baby pictures

Hello Everybody,
It has been awhile since i was on, but it turns out i had a bad modem. Well anyway, i have some pictures of those baby crossbreds. I will try them. But if they do not pop up, they look like short body texas or flowerhorn cichlids. The spotting tends to run to the blue side. Some have red eyes, some have open mouths, others are almost black. They are anywhere from half an inch up to three inches. The smaller ones tend to have that parrot look. I am sure that they will continue to get more color as they mature.

fertile blood parrot males

Hello everyone,


Has anyone ever seen a Fertile male? Almost all of the plood parrot females i have had were fertile. And the only ones im unsure of are ones that never spawned for me. But i have never seen a male blood parrot that could fertilize the eggs. I never had them eye up anyways. But almost any south american cichlid can spawn with a female blood parrot. And have a viable spawning.

red texas X purple parrot babys

Hello everyone,


Just an update on the babys. They are a nice greeny gold with blue back ground spotting. Just a few look
like they will be short bodied like the parrot mom. But most of them have red eyes like the red texas dad.
Over all i would say they look like baby flowerhorns. Speaking of which, my next thing is to try to get that
purple parrot to spawn with one of my flowerhorn cichlids. we shall see.

Red texas X purple parrot babys

Hello everyone,


I have some pictures of those crosses, as soon as i can upload them.


The first batch are a half to three quarters of an inch long, and the second batch are about a quarter of an inch long. I am hoping i get some true blue blood parrots out of them. The father is a red texas, and i know they get them by crossing a texas cichlid with a flower horn cichlid. And the only metallic blue, red eyed flower horn cichlid is the blue thai flower horn, as far as i know.

red texas X purple parrot babys

Hello everybody,


I just got back from checking the latest brood and the tank is just aswarm with babys! The first brood is looking like fish now and some have little pot bellys so im hoping for some parrot shaped ones out of that batch. blue too would be nice.


I already have a little orange parrot with blue dots in the back ground. And if it is a female, i will try to pair her up. As the females are the ones that are fertile.


I will keep trying the photos.

Posting Photo's of parrot mixes.

Hello Everyone,


I have pictures of midas x blood parrot, Severum X Blood parrot, But i cannot get them up now.


A user put their pictures right on their message. so people do not have to go off site to look at the pictures. and i have more of the pair that i am trying to get blue blood parrotts from. A side note on them, from the eggs being laid, to the babys swimming, is only four (4) days! They are developing faster than any cichlid i have raised before. convicts are ten (10) days to swimming stage.
