Am I doing something wrong?

 

 From long time ago, I had nine Orange Parrot fish for about six years. Then they died one after the other. Now I have two Orange Parrot fish and one Oscar. Yesterday I resceved two Oscars but one Oscar had died today. I requrly clean thier filter and chage the water or at least renew half of the tank's water, specially if one fish died. I also have another goldfish tank. They used to be four gold fish but two died and yesterday my sister got a new gold fish. All of them are in a good health, the Parrot fish, the Oscars, and the Gold fish.

Please Help with my Blood Parrot

Hello,

I have 10 year old Blood Parrot and he has those white things on his face or nose and its getting worst and worst. Other fish is fine, they are not getting sick like him.

He is eating, swimming fine, digging rocks every day like he been doing. But if its important about 3 month ago he got sick really bad, he stopped eating, than he laid on his side behind the rock for 3 or 5 days and I thought he was dying and on 6th or 7th day he came out and started swimming fine and started getting better and better.

pH question...

I don't actually have the parrots -yet- but I absolutely plan on getting two of them. My question is this:

 

The current pH in my tank is 8.2. Through research, I've found that this is a bit too high for parrots. My problem is that I live in Ohio, and our water is just...hard as heck.

 

How do I soften it? Do I actually need to soften it, or would they be okay with that? I found something about peat moss but it didn't really say if you had to plant it or what to do with it...

 

Help? lol

7year old needs help

Has anyone had the same problem? I have a 7 year old parrot cichlid which has been a great fish for us entertaining and endearing it's self with her owners and company over the period. Now however she has a problem. Despite looking and behaving well she have a swelling hanging down at the egg tube area  outside the body which has a blood/ flesh type appearance. I thought it might be a blockage and have stopped feed for the time being. Is it a Hernia or maybe a prolapse of the rectum and can anything be done?

New Parrot fish

I have 4 BP for about a week now,  I understand that they will hide at first but I have only seen one of them since I put them in the tank.  The one that I do see will see me and almost kill itself trying to hide.  

Is there anything I can do to get them to come out?   When I picked them out they were the most active.

 

Thank you
