My parrots lose color, don't eat and just lay on the bottom of the tank for 3-4 days each month it seems like. When I do partial water changes every other week they come right back to life, eat like vaccums, bright orange color and very active. my water parameters are good and i keep regular water change schedule. I have a 55gal tank with 2 parrots, 2 angels, 1 featherfin catfish and 3 small dwarf red guaramies. Is the tank big enough? I feed them sinking cichlid pellets, blood worms, and flake. Any ideas?
Help, my cichlids are turning pale and lathargic. I have two rp cichlidsin a 29 gallon tank, dont lecture me, I know I need a bigger tank, not here to hear the bs, my rp is just laying there, eats sometimes, but for the most part it just lies there looking pale. 29 gallon tank, I know!!! 2 rp cichlids, but babies, 3 corey cats n a pkeco, 0 Ammonia, ph 7.8 to 8, temp 82.5, I put live plants in the tank, are there some live plants they dont like? Could make them sick? Water wisteria and mondo grass, something like that, help, before they die

I have my parrots for about 6 months, and are slowly learning they are picky eaters. I was feeding them small minnows, and red wigglers plus flakes, pellets. Now they are off & on about feeding on minnows? Any suggestions on live feeding would be appreciated.
Upgrading to a new tank and need advice. Wet/dry sump with bio balls down below in 29 gallon and overflow sponge filter.
Love my fish and I am upgrading to a 90 gallon with wet/dry sump eith bio balls and sponge filter ( lower tank for sum is 30 gallon) and beautiful set up.
I currently have two large blood red parrots 6 years old in 46 gallon tank with bio wheel and rock substrate. I keep an extra clean tank and change water frequently. I just want it to be a good adjustment.
Hi all, I'll try to keep this brief. I think my little parrots are sick, but I'm having trouble diagnosing them, therefore I'm unsure as to what action to take. :-(
My two smaller parrots have both suddenly developed a angry-looking red streak underneath their top fin... This has happened almost overnight. One of them has had a 'cut' for a couple of days and I thought one of the other fish had perhaps nipped it... (But I found this odd, since the tank is rather placid).
