Why did my pink parrot fish turn orange?
Answer: Tropical parrot fish are hybrids that have been bred for a select market and due to bad breeding methods they all contain certain deformities. Many of the parrot fish sold are dyed; because of this the coloration is false and will gradually fade. These fish are not too well accepted by many fish keepers and indeed there is a campaign to boycott their sale. Do not confuse these with true marine parrotfish.
