Azure, two roach rish urinant and on a chief engrailed argent an arrow vert.

Connective conjunctions make the blazon flow better.

Stylewise this is fine - color field with metal charges, standard
posture, etc.  The one and only roach was registered in 1980 and was
called a 'roach fish', which is why I changed the blazon. If it's for
a cant, it'll likely be kept providing something in the depiction
makes them actually roaches, otherwise you might get a blazon change.
Fish are excellent canting charges because there are so many different

I checked for conflict, as well.  This armory qualifies for X.2. with
only two types of charge lying directly on the field and no overall
charges.  Fish types get at most significant difference, but not
substantial, so that meant wading through the fish categories (pun
blatantly intended) plus a check against fish-tailed monsters.

I found nothing that conflicts.
