yellow ingot parrot fish buyThe Ingot parrot cichlid is a unique hybrid fish that originated in Indonesia in the late 1990s. It was created by crossing F1 hybrid parrot cichlids with other South American cichlid species. The Ingot parrot is prized for its shimmering silver coloration.

As their name suggests, Ingot parrots display a striking, shiny silver-gray base body color reminiscent of an ingot of precious metal. Their scales also exhibit iridescent hints of blue, pink, and gold that shine under lighting. Darker gray vertical bars run down the length of the body.

A notable feature is their foreshortened, oval-shaped body lacking a defined caudal peduncle and tail fin. Their mouth remains fixed in a parrot-like beak shape. Despite significant anatomical deformities, most adapt well to home aquariums.

Ingot parrots reach up to 6 inches in captivity and have a lifespan of 5-10 years with proper care. They are generally peaceful and suitable for community tanks when provided with tank mates of comparable size and temperament.

While controversial, Ingot parrot cichlids captivate aquarists with their gleaming silver metallic sheen and quirky characteristics. Their radiant ingot-like shine is matched by an engaging personality that makes them a popular oddball fish.
