Im not sure what you are after.

The true parrot cichlid is Hoplarchus psittacus (because it has a head like a parrot (psittacines))

These are large fish from blackwater areas of South America.I dont think they exist in Australia anymore.

The fish common in Aus is Hypsophrys nicaraguensis but this is not the true parrot cichlid,even though a beautiful fish.It comes from Central America

There is also a horrible hybrid flowerhorn type cichlid know as the parrot cichlid
