Overview
The Blue Zebra Parrot is sometimes referred to as the Tiger Parrot and is the result of crossbreeding different Central American Cichlids. The body of this fish is round in shape with a beak-shaped nose. The color of these fish range from orange to red when mature.

The Parrot requires an aquarium of at least 55 gallons, with a sandy bottom, rocks and plenty of hiding places among the rocks. Live plants should be planted in pots to protect the roots from these fish. The Parrot is generally peaceful with other fish of similar size, but can be timid or bullied by other Cichlids.

The Parrot is normally infertile and will not successfully breed in the aquarium. They may lay eggs in a cave, but because the males are often times infertile, they usually will not develop.

The Parrot is omnivorous and will eat most prepared and frozen foods, including freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and ocean plankton, as well as flake food and Cichlid pellets.
