I have the same thing. Bright red and the mouth is not as deformed as a Blood Parrot normally is. I was told by a breeder that not all fish come out the same. Some have the trait and some do not..(open mouth). In other words...all fish are not born identical. I believe he said. Severum and red devil. Now...the body of my parrot is kind of funky. He looks lumpy around the middle. Like he's bloated! In fact..it worried me for quite a while until a better fish store said that it was a normal characteristic. I know one thing..he gets along well with all the tank mates and eats like a pig!fengshui said:Hi, I have several blood parrots or as I was told they were. I am wondering if any of them could possibly be a King Kong parrot since it is much more red and can correctly close its mouth. Please identify, thanks!
Uh oh!! We have low quality Parrots!! The mouth closes! I also heard that the Severum as a possible contributor was a myth. The African Cichlid breeding specialist that I deal with states that there have been a lot of experimentation with cross breeding different species in the Parrot line. He acts like you never know what you're gonna get! He states that he's getting frustrated because the hobby is getting convoluted with cross breeding and hybrids. He has a few Peacocks that he doesn't even know what they are! All due to cross breeding!BDpups said:Some info on parrots.
