The Yellow Ingot cichlid is a hybrid aquarium fish species. Produced by crossing the midas cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus)and the synspilum cichlid (Paraneetroplus synspilus), the blood parrot cichlid's genetic mixture has left the fish with a combination of unique physical traits.
Yellow Ingot Cichlids are beautiful, albeit controversial, freshwater fish. These fish are not found in the wild. Instead, they are a hybrid fish species that was first created in Taiwan around 1986.

The exact species used to create the Yellow Parrot Cichlid are not known. However, many think that the Redhead Cichlid (Paraneetroplus synspilus) and Midas Cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus) are the parent species. 
A typical lifespan of a healthy Blood Parrot Cichlid is between 10 and 15 years.

Blood Parrot Cichlids are a unique-looking fish, which is one of main reasons they’re so popular in the aquarium scene.
