What is wrong with my baby? :(

Molly is about 3 1/2 years old. I've noticed lately that she shakes. It's rather odd, and I'm kind of concerned. Is there something wrong with her? 

One Parrot bullying the other

My two blood parrots have been living in harmony for almost 2 years.  About two months ago, I started noticing that the female fish was not growing at the same rate as the male fish and that she was having trouble eating.  I starting hand-feeding her but she could still not keep up with the amount of food the other was eating.  Two weeks ago, I notice her lip was white/swollen and it appeared to be a fungus growing on it.  I removed her promptly and she spent 8 days in a "hospital tank" getting medication.  I returned her to the main tank two days ago.  This is when the problems really star

one of my long time parrots died

I have a question, I had purchased a pair of parrots back in April, 2008, they havd been inseparable for the past 6 yrs. I think one was a female and one a male (not sure) becasue they would lay eggs periodically and stick them to rocks and fan them for several days. Well, this week I found one dead. I believe, based on the size and color (a deep tangerine orange) it was the male. the other one is smaller and more pineapple color.

My question ..... is it best to re-pair it  (no pun intended) immediately ? Or is it advisable to give it some time.

Shy Parrot

I got a lovely female about two weeks ago, and while she's awfully sweet and gentle, she is VERY timid.

Before I go on, she's in perfect health, her color is bright, eyes are clear, she's eating fine. It's just every time I walk past the tank, or even when the dogs walk past the tank, she takes off like a bat out of hell for one of her caves. :/

DEJAVU ALL OVER AGAIN

A while ago I posted having to return one of my Parrots, a male, for overly aggressive behavior towards all of my fish (during an egg laying situation with his mate) Well, the same thing is happening with this other guy! Its weird because I had four Parrots, two of them orange and two of them this yellow kind of color. It turns out both orange fish are definitly females and these yellow types are both male.

Aggressive BP when cleaning tank?

I've had Einstein since mid-July. No clue if it is male or female but I've assigned it a "he". He is around 3 inches long and lives in a 30g with 2 Emerald Corys and 1 Leopard Pleco. He has been fine with them. My question is about his aggressive behavior towards ME. He has become more and more aggressive towards my hand when I am rearranging or cleaning his tank. It doesn't hurt, per say, but it scares the crap out of me and he has become pretty relentless.
