Midnight Parrot (Large 5-8 inches)

 Parrotfish are found in reef and seagrass habitats from Bermuda and Florida (USA) and all throughout the carribbean in waters. Most of the time you can find them scouring coral rubble grazing on algae that grows on the epidermis of dead or alive corals.  You will see them occasionally by themselves but majority of the time you will find them in large schools grazing like a herd of cattle. They are not reef safe and are not the easiest to provide a stable home and food for. For this reason, you should be an experienced aquarist if you decide to go with any parrotfish. With my experience they will eat frozen brine shrimp and frozen krill.

    Smaller then expected

    Posted by michael feiner on 29th Aug 2020

    A little disappointed with the size of the fish I received. Paid $150 for a “large” 5 - 8 inch fish and when it arrived the parrot was on the very small size. The medium on here goes for like $40 and no way was this fish worth $110 more from the medium to large difference. I have purchased in the past and was happy with the size I received so maybe this is just a one off, but I figured I would put it out there.

    Nice Fish and Size was Exactly as Described

    Posted by Joseph on 5th May 2017

    Ordered this fish along with 10 other parrot fish of various sizes medium to XL. All were well above the minimum size description and most of them exceeded the maximum size description. I have been ordering fish on line since 2004 and many times fish never met the minimum size description. Arrived in excellent condition and well packaged. Plan to use Foxy Salt Water Tropical for my Saltwater Fish in future.
