    Show Parrot Fish?

    My LFS is selling two "Show Parrot Fish", I was told when they're bigger then your hand it's called a Show. These two are about the size of a CD, and their color is a light pink. They're labeled as Male and Female but I was told by the owner that Parrots can't breed? My main question was are these Parrot fish? Because whenever I see Parrot fish they have a odd shape to their head but these are perfectly normal. Now the picture below isn't them but is the closest I could find. If it would make a difference to have a perfect picture of them I can get one. Also what would be the minimum tank size for two "Show Parrots"?

    Thanks,
    Justin

    I don't think a 29G would be good for them they're pretty big, let me try to get a picture for you sometime tomorrow.

    Try the hybrid forum - you'll probably get more responses

    Should be in the FH section, they are hybrids. Male parrots are sterile. There is no such thing as "show" parrots. It is a sales gimmick to make people think they have something special. I am sure they are nice parrots. How much? I would think two of them would be good in a 55. They def won't get bigger than 12".

    Ok thanks I'll try that not to familiar with these guys, I might of made them sound fairly small but they take up half of a 55G when together.

    She wanted $29.99 each but I could probably get them $15 each, they're about 7" across.
