Blood parrot question

I just brought home a beautiful blood parrot it's color is bright orange. A few weeks ago I bought a blood parrot from petsmart and it is smaller and has green strips! I noticed it has turned almost completely the dark green color! and my orange blood parrot has little black spots forming. What could this be? I have noticed some behavior between them! The small green one turns on its side and the orange one swims under. They do this a lot and chase each other but never nip. What could this be?

Its a Blood Parrot just crossed with something else to get the green coloration and stripes. I've seen them at Petsmart.

The ones I saw looked like they were crossed with convicts, and fire mouths.

That was a joke but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it did infact stem from one of the displays at petsmart, they keep some ridiculous stock together at times.
