hey, i’m new here but have been fishkeeping for a few years, and have been really active the past year or so. I have a 1000gallon built in heated pond in my front yard. I also live in Florida so the water is a constant 75° to 85°. anyway last year I bought about 10 blood parrots (my favorite ❤), 8 jack dempsey, 10 firemouths, 10 convicts, 3 oscars, and there’s also a few angelfish and africans in there. there are even a few large goldfish and schools of minnows. everyone gets along, no problems. there’s plenty of room and plenty of food. recently I’ve noticed this fish hanging out with my blood parrots and I have no idea what kind of fish he is! he has the shape and speckles of a JD, but is a faint orange and black. I’ve never seen anything like him, nor do I remember buying a fish like that. Could a female blood parrot spawn with a JD or another cichlid? or is this something different entirely? can you guys help! he’s a super friendly fish.. he follows me around the pond with the blood parrots waiting to greet me. when i stick my hand in the pond to let the blood parrots *kiss* my hand, he’s always right up front like he wants to try, but i’m scared bc he probably can bite lol. anyway if anyone can help, i’d really appreciate it.
