Common Names: Flowerhorn Parrots, Flowerhorn Blood Parrots, Kirin Parrot, Kirin Fish, Kilin Parrots, Killin Parrots.
Kirin Parrot fish
are commonly called Flowerhorn Parrots. These are hybrid fish created from Flowerhorn cichlids and Blood Parrot cichlids. They are the result of a few generations of line breeding and are rarely seen from the first generation of fry from crossing Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots cichlids. Kirin Parrots have the body of a Blood Parrot with the colors and marking of a Flowerhorn which make them so distinctive looking. And they are sometimes often mistaken as short body Flowerhorn fish but are not the same. There are fairly new addition to the hobby and aren't yet sold as mainstream as Blood Parrots are. Interestingly these cichlids resemble an old aquarium favorite known as Jack Dempsey fish
