King Kong Parrot Fish Cichlid Size

King Kong Parrot Cichid is the typical type of Cichlid hybrid at the earlier stage, therefore, the King Kong Parrot Cichlid has been compared to the Blood Red Parrot Cichlid.  Except for the fact that the King Kong Parrot Cichlid is larger than the Blood Red Parrot Cichlid, they are very much alike.

The body of King Kong Parrot is round in shape with a beak-shaped nose and upside down triangle shaped lips.

The color of the parrot cichlid ranges from yellow to red when mature. As a juvenile, they are dark in color, and they gain the yellow to red coloration as they mature.

King Kong Parrot Cichlid requires an aquarium of at least 80 gallons, with a soft substrate, rocks and plenty of hiding places such as caves among the rocks. 

King Kong Parrot Cichlid are shy at first, but after as little as a week and as much as a few months they will begin to come out more during the day and show a more cichlid like behavior. They can be kept alone or in a group and seem to do fine either way. They live for about ten years.

Males and female King Kong Parrot Fish are identical in coloring and pattern, but males are slightly larger than females.

Although King Kong parrots have been known to mate and even lay eggs, generally they are infertile. There have been sporadic cases of successful spawnings, generally when females have been crossed with a non-hybrid fish.

Like other cichlids, blood parrots will tend the eggs and resulting fry fastidiously. As with any eggs, those that are infertile will turn white and rapidly develop fungus.

The parents will eat infertile eggs to prevent them from spreading the fungus to the fertile eggs. Once the eggs hatch, daily water changes of 25 percent are critical to ensuring the health of the fry.

What Makes A King Kong Parrot?

Kind of a difficult question to answer as they come about a few different ways. There are breeders throwing out spawns of straight up kkp but I believe they sort kkp from regular bp spawns as well. There are lots of hybrids with fancy names but they are pretty much A grade kkp like mammons etc
