Parrotfish are known to be omnivores that will feed on pretty much anything from living corral to rotting fish carcasses. These curious fish are known to be able to change sexes, some species will begin life as males and switch to females, and others switch from female to male, some will change sex in both directions, and others will be both sexes at the same time.
