    Default Parrot Fish or What???


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi All!

    I have 5 parrot fishes and 2 Oscars since 6 months now in a 200 gallon setup.. But, Yesterday i saw a change in one of my parrot fish.. When i got him he was small and red color with some black spots on the forehead... But now all of sudden he seems larger than the other parrots, Changed shape as well (A disk shape), Orange-ish color now and also started developing a hump on the forehead like a flower horn fish.. I am now confused that is it a parrot fish or some other breed that looks like a parrot fish when small..??

    I tried to do some research on internet but couldn't find much..Please advise, any information will be appreciated..!

    Are my other fishes at risk if its a flower-horn??

    Thanks in advance...

    Any chance you could post a picture of this fish ?

    That would help a lot in answering your question
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    It still looks like a blood parrot. However, these fish are hybrids and thus there can be quite a large variation in color and other physical characteristics.

    @madagascariensis - Ok, Thanks for the information.. I was curious to know because i never have heard about a hump on parrot fish.. So i thought is may be another breed...because the fins and shape is kind of a flowerhorn.

    Thanks

    I may be wrong, but you might possibly have a King Kong blood parrot - which gets larger than regular blood parrots and develops a hump like flowerhorns. The mouth looks different from regular blood parrots. If he can close it, that's another reason to think it may be a King Kong

    @fishmommie - I think its a king kong blood parrot by reading out about King Kong BP's...

    But nowhere it's mentioned about their aggressiveness. As i am concerned about my other fishes if these are aggressive as flower-horns, being having a hump..??

    Any information is appreciated.

    Thanks

    While I have 3 blood parrots, I have never had a king kong. I don't know about their aggressiveness level. I'd advise you google and read everything you can about the king kong. there may be some forums out there with king kong owners who you can ask.
    Good luck.
