The latest of special Parrot Cichlids, the King Kong Parrot is a man-made cichlid that's fairly easy to care for. Unlike many of the colourful Parrots, this one isn't dyed and will therefore retain its colours if cared for properly. The aquarium should be spacious to accommodate these large fish and it should be furnished with lots of rocks and bog wood for the fish to explore with fine substrate as this fish does thoroughly enjoy digging. Plants are not recommended as they're likely to be eaten.

Each Yellow King Kong Parrot is likely to establish its own little territory, so it is important to ensure that if several specimens are kept, there is plenty of space for everyone to have their own spot.

Once settled, these parrot cichlids are fairly peaceful, friendly and very interactive with their owners.
Ideal tank mates include other peaceful Cichlids, Angelfish, Cories, Barbs and larger Tetras. Smaller fish should be avoided as they may be seen as food.

Food should be offered in the form of sinking cichlid pellets as well as fresh or frozen insect larvae. As a special treat, out parrots love Evolution Aqua dried freshwater shrimp
