am confused. at the top of the first link the guy says that parrot cichlids are found in the wild it is the blood parrot cichlid which are not found.

I always thought that none of them were found in the wild.

He then starts to refer to both of the fish as the same fish. :S

so are all parrot cichlids real or fake.

Hoplarchus psittacus, the original parrot cichlid, is found in the wild. Bloodparrots, however, are hybrids and are not found in the wild :)

Yup, this natural beauty had no part in the blood parrot experiment.
