I have a texas x FH and a blood parrot that I think have paired up. The parrot has spawned before so I'm hoping for the best.

personally, I think anything that looks like a blood parot should be killed, my feelings hear don't change. I love flower horns, hate blood parots. But that is just my opinion.

I'm sorry, he asked for my thoughts on the fish. I told him.

I'm not against hybrids. Please don't twist my words. I love Flowerhorns and other crosses that still look like a natural fish. Parots do not, like I said, IN MY OPINION.

Why are so many so quick to get defensive on this site. If you don't want an opinion on a fish, don't ask a question you don't want an answer too.

In case I mis-read this question-Here are some pic s' i found on another siteWhat do you guys think ???

These hybrid threads always stir the pot. I say if you ask for an opinion and get a negative one, you shouldn't be offended. We all like different things. I also think that it is well documented that some people don't like hybrids. To those people I would suggest not posting on the hybrid forum. I say we should hate each other in private. LOL

Looks like my FH and parrot are about to spawn. He's "dancing", cleaning the pot, and her tube is hanging.

They look like great quality out of that breeding, but they look mutated just like the parrots.. Parrot lovers will love those. I think those are the ugliest shaped FHs ever.

06-02-2007, 1:21 PM
I have always wanted one. dose it have any parrot in it, or is it just a odd varent of FH? Average price?

I think the fish looks good, but I do like the blood parrots with the red texas pattern (someone mentioned ealier) better though.

Sweet!! Hope everything works out. And if it does... well, you know where you can pawn off some fry:D

i like the colors, but the shape of parrots just strike me as being odd/ugly, especially as they get bigger. that pattern on a FH would be really nice though

I think you asked this ? twice... If you reread the first post you would notice that the poster does not own these... he simply found the pics on the net and wanted to see everyones opinion... I'm not sure if anyone here actually owns one...
And for all you hybrid haters, I'm really tired of reading threads here and listening to your flaming. If you hate hybrids go protest some where else... obviously if people are posting on this forum it's because they as well as many other people LOVE hybrids. It's just another variant to collect. And with a hybrid you never know what your gonna get you can cross the same species many times and keep coming up with slightly different looking offspring! I love them! I mean if you don't care for a specific one like bp's (which I don't and I kinda think the big dome on a fh looks kinda silly too...) that's one thing but to hate hybrids in general, either keep it to your self or don't come to this forum!

The first two pics are actually my fish!!! Have two of them and one was bullying the other, added blood parrots to the mix and the smaller one doesn't get chased that much anymore. The one in the picture is greedy and has had his share of smaller tankmates whereas the other one did not chase other fish.

got them here in Hong Kong, shop had one batch and they were quite expensive - have never seen them again, guess they were a one off batch. Am seeing more bonzai flowerhorns lately which do not look as nice.

These guys are awsome, I found some at a petco today so i got one. He is kinda dark though. You can see his flower line but he has dark vertical stripes all down his sides and he's brown. Do they lighten up as they get older? just wondering...

btw, there was no tag on the tank so the guy gave him to me as an oscar for $4 :)

i wonder what a remix of a bloddparrot/flowerhorn to a flowerhorn would look like?

do u guys think this can happen?

Fishyfan
06-05-2007, 12:11 AM
My god, my new little flowerhorn x parrot is pushy, he controls the entire upper half of the tank already and he's only 1.5" :irked:. He has the other cichlids hiding. He's not doing any damage but hes chasing and nipping at all the other fish. If i were to get another one, do you think they would chase each other instead of the other fish?

I wouldn't keep my hopes too high...I got similar babies at Walmart & they lighten up to Parrot colors as they grow older & larger. When they are born, most of them have the cichlid stripings. It would take a real cross with a FH to mantain the colors/patterns of a FH..;)

They turn orange? awww crap :( thats boring

Well i got a question, should i get another one? This guy is getting aggressive, i was thinking if i get another one they might keep the aggression to themselves?

Yes....they focus 100% on one another for better or worse. Mine went through phases, psyco<--->scared at the top of the tank for no reason. I now have my 4 girls with a convict male that is slightly smaller. He was trying to kill his girlfriend in the breeding tank for some reason, and i do want some jellies. So I threw him in. They keep him on his toes to say the least. No signs of pairing though....

Just two parrots won't work - at least not with me. The weaker one will be constantly chased. Since I added the parrots, the weaker flowerhorn/parrot has become more assertive.

So whats the minimum number you would keep together?

hkg69
06-05-2007, 11:19 PM
If you plan on keeping more, I'd say go for 5, gives them a chance to pair up. To be honest, I have never had parrots that would bother other cichlids tho unless the tank is too small.
