Purple Parrot (Grade A) – 2 pack


These fish’s name comes from the shape of their mouths and from their green and yellow colorings, both of these similar to those of the parrot. Besides their beak-like mouth and their coloration, these fish also have big and bright yellowish-green eyes. They can reach up to 10 inches. The Purple Blood Parrot has a deep red coloration almost looking like it is purple, some say this color comes from being artificially dyed while others say it is just a color morph. To keep these fish in captivity, water temperature should range from 76°F to 84°F and water pH between 6.5 and 7.8. The tank should have a sandy substrate and hiding places. They are a bit aggressive and as such should be kept with similar sized and similar tempered tankmates. A 42-gallon tank is a minimum recommended to keep a single fish and 10 gallons should be added per fish added to the tank.
