 That's  information  to  me.
 All  I  knew  was  that  'creative  hobbyists'  have  manipulated  with  it's  genes  left,  right  and  center  through  mixing  and  matching,  to  bring  out  the  shape  that  it  has.

 Guys,
     Looks  like  this  is  the  first  post  for  Indudhar.
 Welcome  to  IAH    Indudhar.
 
 We  have  a  section  in  our  forums  for  "Cichlids"  (which  is  the  group  which  the  blood  parrot  belongs  to).  Please  use  the  above  said  forum  for  questions  or  general  talk  regarding  Cichlids.
 
 We  need  to  be  patient  with  newcomers  and  will  help  if  we  guide  them  rather  than  lambast  them    Thumb Down  without  showiing  them  the  right  way  .  
 
 Blood  parrots  or  rather  any  fish  that  have  bright  colours  need  a  balanced  diet  which  enhances  colour  for  them  to  be  showing  good  colours.
 
 What  feeds  are  you  giving  these  guys  ?
 
 Give  them  feeds  that  have  carotene  in  them.  Carotene  helps  bring  out  the  redness  in  fishes.
 
 Hope  this  helps.
 
 Happy  fishkeeping.
 
 Cheers,

 Hi  Indudhar:
 
 Firstly,  all  parrots  are  man  created...
 Secondly,  almost  all  are  harmone  fed  to  enhance  colors...they'll  loose  colours  as  they  grow  OR  as  timepasses  by...
 
 I  say  'NO'  to  Parrots...
 Bye,

 I  have  derived  immense  pleasure  and  happiness  out  of  having  parrots  in  my  aquariums  for  a  long  time  now.  They  are  very  lovable  creatures  and  their  eyes,  as  i  see,  are  very  expressive  and  basically  very  playful  fish.  I  believe  they  communicate  with  the  keepers  too.  
 
 I  however,  do  not  have  much  experience  of  keeping  other  natural  bred  chiclids,  barring  some  pseudotropheus  auratus  and  some  more  tangyanika  chiclids.  Discus  are  ofcourse  a  different  ball  game  alltogether  and  i  love  em  too.  I  am  sure  Nag  has  some  genuine  reasons  to  say  NO  to  parrots  and  i  do  not  disrespect  it.    I  have  really  not  delved  into  that  aspect  of  fish  enthusiasm.  
 
 I  would  still  suggest  simple  fish  hobbyists  to  keep  a  pair  or  two  and  watch  them  take  away  all  your  stress  and  will  definately  make  u  smile  with  their  wobbly  movements  and  kissing  habbits  and  other  antics.  Do  add  some  small  stone  chips  and  sand  to  the  substrate  so  they  can  be  busy  creating  pits  in  the  sand  and  throwing  around  the  stone  chips.    Thumbs Up  
 
 Regards,
 Simba

 All  blood  parrots  are  hybrid/harmoned/dyed  fishes.    Their  overall  body  shape  is  a  deformity  because  of  crossing  two  or  more  extremely  different  species  and  it  is  obvious  for  red/blue/green/orange/magenta  parrots  to  fade  away.    I  haven't  yet  seen  a  faded  parrot  regain  the  colour  it  was  when  purchased.    You  can  try  feeding  any  carotene  rich  diet  or  made  for  parrot  food  to  improve  its  colour.

 i  agree  with  madhu.  you  can  also  try  hi-red  to  bring  out  the  colors.    keep  in  mind  this  only  works  for  the  yellow  to  red  range  of  colors  (including  food  containing  carotene).

 simba,
 
 most  of  us  say  no  to  hybrids  because  nature  has  provided  us  with  a  vast  variety  of  species  with  different  characteristics  /  personalities...  more  than  enough  for  anyone,  so  why  create  hybrids?  hybrids,  if  released  to  the  wild,  can  wreak  havoc....

 Some  sources  of  carotenoid  can  bring  out  other  colours  too.    For  eg.,  spirulina  enriched  Artemia  can  enhance  blue  pigments  and  blue-green  algae  can  enhance  green  pigments  too.
