I have a female parrot cichlid that I have had for going on 5 years now. She has always been pretty healthy-eating normally and hardly ever losing her bright orange color. Just recently I have noticed that she is not eating like she would, with the majority of her food remaining untouched. She is also beginning to lose her vivid color. Other than that her behavior is normal. I am worried that she might be getting sick and want to get her better before any damage is done. She is kept in a 40 gal. tank with another small parrot cichlid that I keep around 80-82 degrees with water changes taking place every 7-10 days. If it is of any importance, my other fish is a bit pale in color, as well, but was never a bright color to begin with. I also treated the tank for ich about a month or two ago after noticing some spots on my larger fish. The ich is no longer present. If any more info is needed do not heasitate to ask-I just want to get my fish better! Any advice is greatly appreciated!
