Hello,

trying to identify my buddy here.
he's quite big. probably about 8-10 inches long.
he does have the "smiley mouth" of a blood parrot, but it's more like a perfect smile mouth - and it's closing.

obvioulsy, per the picture, he doesn't have a hump on the head like a red kk.

maybe a kind of red devil ? or an hybrid ?
please help me out

thanks

Well, it's not a Blood Parrot, but it is a "parrot" of some sort. Might be a King Kong parrot though I'm not certain what specifically your fish should be called.
These fish are hybrid and the different types or breeds of hybrid parrot are thought to originate from the same cross (Rose queen as well).
There is fairly strong evidence that the hybrid parrots originate from a midas/red devil X Synspilum cross, though it is not a proven fact.
There are a number of different types or breeds that are thought to originate from this cross. Blood parrot, King Kong parrot and Rose queen are probably the 3 most well known, though there are some other types.
