The Greenblotch Parrotfish, Sparisoma atomarium, is primarily an algae eater as opposed to the other types of parrotfish, which are primarily coral eaters. This type of parrotfish does not get very large only around 5 inches in length which makes them great for aquariums. They also enjoy pellet foods, and other meaty foods if you do not have an algae problem.
The ones that we sell are around 1 to 2 inches in length since they get harder to determine types once they get their adult colorations.
Please Note: Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined. All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system. If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank. If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak. We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we dont always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed. A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
