Hi, I have had my blood parrot for over 5 years. He has always had a voracious apetitie but recently I noticed that while he took food into his mouth, it was coming back out minutes later. It seemed as though he was trying to chew but couldn't hold it in his throat to do so. (This is different than bloat in my opinion as he does not spit the food back right away and try again--he keeps it in for a long time trying to eat it) He can also hardly get the food by himself, I don't know if he can't see well or just can't angle his large body under it correctly. I have to push the pellet into his mouth for him to even attempt to eat it. In recent weeks the problem has become worse. He can't even keep in bloodworms--they come out his gills. And he seems frustrated...once the food comes back out and the other fish gobble it up he starts flashing off the decorations and raising his dorsal fin. It is painful to watch him whither away. Has anyone had experience with their fish not being able to chew their food? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
