Stoplight Parrot (Small)

Stoplight 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.

    This little guy is awesome, he glides all over my aquarium. I haven't seen him peck at any corals, just rocks, very happy with him.

    Not enough water, small bag

    Posted by Taylor Green on 12th Feb 2018

    I was dissappointed in receiving this stoplight parrot fish as there was barely any water in the bag and the fish was near dead. It was upside down and having a hard timw breathing. The fish made a full recovery as they are tough cookies. These fish need more water in their bags!

    Nice Healthy Parrots

    I have purchased only the Large and XL version of these parrots before. These two I purchased for smaller tank were very nice about 1.5-3in. Only gave 4 stars because one was 1.5in and smaller than the princess and red banded small ones I purchased before. Cannot complain because I could have call and asked Jason the size before hand and he is always will to work with you and accommodate. Never the less I never had any casualties shipping to PA. Fish always arrive in excellent condition.

    Great parrots!

    I wouldn't mind having a tank full of these parrots. They are extremely hardy and very active swimming about the tank constantly. They are extremely friendly and come to the front of the glass to great you. If you want fish with character, then here you are.Jason is breat to deal with and takes better care of his animals than his competitor.
