Caption

Stoplight parrotfish (Sparisoma viride) sleeping amongst rocks on the seabed at night. This parrotfish is active only by day. It feeds on algae and corals in the tropical waters of the western Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea. It can reach a length of over 60 centimetres. This fish has a highly variable colour, and not all individuals have the bright spots that give the fish its name.
