a parrot fish cant even close its mouth, i also think it has no spline. All it is is a hybrid severum and something else. Also there are a lot of dyed parrot fish out there, Always make sure with your lfs if the fish is dyed or not. If they say something like, "well yeah but they look really nice! I'll give it to you for a discount." dont listen, they should be off the market and made illegal. Its like a tattoo on your you-know-what on an innocent baby, thats what it probably feels like, besides the fact that the effect isnt even permanent.
Also as blue said in another post, dont get those Galaxy Rasboras since they are becoming endangered.
Please reconsider the Pleco, it is another LFS problem that they sell common pleco's to a begginer, they get really big. If your husband likes them so much im sure he can get a bigger tank that will fit them. And if not, there are many different types of pleco's on the market that are a lot smaller, like a pitbull or brittlenose. Please, its not for the sake of the tanks look, its for the sake of the fishes health
