Thread: Red Parrot Fish

  1. Default

    The peeling effect (or changing color) is the result of the red devil (a. labiatus) or midas (A. citrenellus) parentage used to create blood parrots.

    You're going to LOVE your BPs. I took my cue from LadyHobbs because she loves hers so much. They are the most entertaining fish ever. Be aware that you might not see much of them the first couple of weeks or so. they are very shy and need places to hide to feel secure. but once they realize they're safe, they are very visible and playful.
    I've only had mine 2 months and they snatch peas right out of my fingers when I feed them on veggie day LOL
    mine are still babies but there's a video of them on page 18 or 19 of my journal (link in my sig line) if you want to see them interact with other fish.
    Have fun!!

    as you can see - anyone who has them are pretty fanatic about how great they are LOL

    Thanks guys. They are shy most of the time but during feeding time they become Rambos. They dont care whose around lol. They are the only fish n the tank. Still thinking if I should or should not add other fish. I like it the way it is.
    Roll the Dice!

    sorry - I missed that this thread was started in august and you already had your fish. You probably know a LOT more about them than I do at this point.

    yup. they are sassy, silly, funny, demanding little clowns. never dreamed I'd laugh at a fish. but then, I laugh at my snails and some of their antics so there ya go. I think I need help.

    Sometimes the black areas are permanent.
