Answer Parott Fish Sex IDThere are many different kinds of parrot fish- they go through different phases on their way to maturity. In these stages they change colors. Some change sex from female to male. All the "Terminal Phase" fish are mature males.The only way to ID the sex is by type of fish and color.IE the Stoplight parrot fish female,or Initial Phase, is mottled reddish brown mixed with white scales and a reddish belly. The Terminal phase, or male is neon green/darker green scales, pink by the gills,& yellow on the head and tail. Some blue is on the edge of the face and fins. They look like two different kinds of parrot fish. The Reef Fish ID Book by P. Humann lists 13 different kinds of parrot fish with photos.
