The Red Parrot, sometimes known as the Blood Red Parrot, is the product of crossbreeding between several Central American Cichlids. The body of this fish is spherical, and the snout is formed like a beak. When fully grown, the color of these fish ranges from orange to red. As a juvenile, they are black in hue, but as they get older, they become red.
