Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      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.

      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".

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