    We were told at our local fish store where we bought it's a parrots feather and I'm a little doubtful as it looks so shiny. 20190818_160621.

    I think you're right, it looks more like it than parrot feather. Is it usually that shiny?

    looks like Parrot Feather.

    its shiny probably b/c it was grown emerse.

    Ooh maybe it is parrot feather, I never thought about it maybe being grown emersed. I was just so intrigued by the shine :D
