The Quoyi, a splendid Parrotfish originating from the Western Pacific, boasts a stunning array of rainbow-like colors. Despite being recognized in the enthusiast community as a "reef-safe" Parrotfish, this label comes with a caveat. While they do exhibit reef-safe tendencies, it's important to exercise caution. In their natural habitat, they graze on algae found on coral reefs, which technically makes them not entirely reef safe. To accommodate their needs, it is vital to furnish a spacious environment adorned with substantial rock formations. This particular Parrotfish thrives on a diet abundant in seaweed and meaty sustenance, enhancing their well-being and vitality.
