It's sad that these "Parrot fish" are artificially colored.

They are hybrids, and their skin is dyed.

The photo itself is very nice though. ^^

"Bubblegum Parrot or Jelly Bean
Fish sold under these names are dyed versions of the Bloody Parrot fish. The Bloody Parrot does not exist in the wild; it is a human made hybrid that has been created by crossbreeding several different colorful cichlids. The Bloody Parrot cichlid is not a red color variation of the Parrot cichlid (Hoplarchus Psittacus). Bubblegum Parrots and Jelly Beans are dyed using bright colors like purple, green, red and blue. Their immune system is often damaged by the dyeing."
