    $\begingroup$ Mgk - C'mon. Parrotfish are AMAZING! Some of them can change sexes as adults! They are responsible for most of the sand on earth! They are good eating! You can actually hear them crunching coral when snorkeling! Surely you can say more than "this is a parrot fish." (Can you tell I like parrot fish?) $\endgroup$ Mar 11, 2019 at 5:27
