Husbandry

Moura, Figueiredo & Sazima, 2001

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Scarus zelindae to Dr. Osmar Luiz from Australia.
Dr. Luiz has taken hsi photos at Brazil.

Scarus zelindae is endemic to Brazil and occurs from Manoel Luis Reefs in northeastern Brazil to the São Paulo coast in southeastern Brazil. It is absent from all Brazilian oceanic islands.
The Striped Parrotfish occurs in coralline areas and rocky reefs at depths of 1 to 60 m. Scarus zelindae is predominantly herbivorous, ingesting algae and detritus.
