The color of the Bicolor Parrotfish changes with maturity. As a juvenile, the coloration is white with an orange band across the face, and orange at the dorsal and caudal fins.
The mature fish has a blue body with a spotted face and additional colors at the fins. The name, "Parrotfish" comes from the shape of the mouth. The teeth are fused together to form a "beak" that resembles a parrots.
A 500 litre or larger aquarium with plenty of swimming room is required, due to its size. The aquarium should contain live rock and hard corals (skeletons are acceptable). The Bicolor Parrotfish will eat algae off the corals and rocks, and chew on the hard corals to eat the animals within.
The diet should be supplemented with a variety of herbivore preparations, flaked foods, and meaty preparations.
