    You can buy them at any pet store or even Walmart. They cost anywhere from 20 to 30 dollars depending where you get it. Just thought I'd let you know in case you didn't. I have 4 of them and love them!

    They also can be very aggressive so you have to be careful what you put them with. What do you have in there now?

    I bought baby ones from animalia for $2.50. It doesn't take them long to get big. Wal-mart has them for $15.99 but they are pretty sick looking.

    So will they always be white? Because I know that parrot fish normally get their color from being injected.

    I have no idea. I know they're naturally orange or red, sometimes injected to make it a deeper color. I was told they would turn orange/red when they matured but honestly, I don't care if they do [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif[/img] I think they're adorable the way they are.

    This is the closest thing I could find to what mine look like. This one is a dwarf jellybean convict, apparently. Mine are slightly different, though.

    The more I read, the more I think they're Jellybean Parrots, not Blood Parrots. Jellybeans are a cross between Bloods and Convicts and are able to reproduce [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] Maybe I'll have some babies haha

    Actually I have 4 and they are one of my favorites! I just thought I would give out a little info on them to help some people out that aren't too familiar with them. Why do you have to be like that?

    I love my parrot fish. He is cool.

    He gets along great with everyone else in the tank...angels, tetras, pleco. He sometimes chases them when I feed bloodworms...they make him a lil crazy.

    I love how he comes up to the glass if you are in the room.

    Mine aren't going to get big [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img] From what I can understand, they are Dwarf Jellybean Convicts. I'm told that's the proper name for a cross between a Parrot and a Pink Convict [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]
