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.

I don't know, but I believe that a parrot fish was actually is a parrot that once dove underwater to find food and accidentally swallowed a wish fish and was transformed into the parrot fish. And now you ask, "But how are their so many?" Let me answer your question. After the parrot was transformed into a fish, it could grant any wish. Then one day a boy was fishing and caught the parrot fish. The fish begged to go back into water since he was a fish now and said if the boy let him go that the parrot fish would grant him a wish. Any wish so the boy agreed. The boys wish was that the fish would make more of the parrot fish so that the boy could catch more and get more wishes. And his wish was granted. So again I don't know if the parrot fish is toxic to humans but they most certainly grant wishes!
