midas and severums can't cross. They are of a totally different genus. Midas and red devils do have the same genus name just different species names which means they are slightly related and able to cross breed in some instances.

So, you really do need two other kind of fish. What about mixing a red devil and and Oscar? Is it possible?,, Oh by the way, I notice my two parrots have no tails, why is that? Is their parents Parrots?, not Midas and red devil? I think my two parrots are deform. Confused Very Happy

Cichliddude123 is right, as well as it being one of the meanest fish! it would also be massive if it was to be a cross between and red devil and a midas, and as parrots only get to 8" in length and red devil and midas get to 12" each I think the blood parrot would grow more to this size. Blood parrots are infact a cross between a Red Devil and Turquoise Severum.

ooops seems I was wrong. I just did some research and found that parrots are indeed a cross between a midas and severum. No wonder the breeding of these guys has so many issues. In most cases it shouldn't happen because of incompatable genuses.

Are my Parrots deform? Why they don't have tails?. Could they be kids of parrots not Severum and red Devil?
