Blue Parrotfish, is a species of parrotfish in Abyssrium: Tap Tap Fish.
The Blue Parrotfish (also known as the Scarus coeruleus) is a fish that primarily resides in the subtropical and tropical parts of the Caribbean Sea and Western Atlantic Ocean. It is mostly found in coral reefs.
The Blue Parrotfish gets its name from its dentition. Its jaws are beak-like, and its teeth are fused together which gives it the appearance of being a beak. This ‘beak’ is used to help them scrape off organisms and algae from rocks which are their primary food source.
As their name implies, they are blue but have a yellow spot on their head. This color pattern changes as the fish get older and the yellow spot often fades with time. The Blue Parrotfish typically has between 30-75 centimeters of length. It’s uncommon for their length to exceed 1.2 meters and their weight is usually about 20 pounds.
The fish has a lifespan of between 7-10 years and are protected from predators by masking their scent as they sleep.
