The Bicolor Parrotfish is commonly referred to as Bicolor Parrotfish, Irobudai, Loro de manchas rojas, and Two-color parrotfish.. The younger Bicolor Parrotfish is white in color with thin stripe of orange across the face. It features orange caudal fins as well as dorsal fins that make a stunning and captivating fish in any tank. And, as the Bicolor Parrotfish grows its color changes from white to blue, and stripes get transformed to spots along with the fins in additional hues. It is named appropriately as the Bicolor Parrotfish, due to presence of joined teeth that forms a beak shape giving a resemblance to a parrot?s beak. Although it is peaceful species, its care level is quite difficult to achieve in captivity. Since the Bicolor Parrotfish can grow relatively larger in size, it must be kept in a tank not less than 30 gallon as a juvenile. It constantly grazes for food. The Bicolor Parrotfish grows up to 30 inches in length in the wild but is typically imported at 2-4 inches. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4 as it prefers alkaline content of the water to be high. Since the Bicolor Parrotfish is not a deep swimmer in wild, it needs brightly lit aquarium. Also, the aquarium should comprise plenty of live coral or rock, and plants at the bottom of it to simulate their natural habitat. The Bicolor Parrotfish is omnivores in its feeding habit, and its diet should be supplemented with herbivore preparations like algae, planktons, etc and meaty foods as well. Since it may nip over the hard corals, it is not considered a reef safe species.
