Parrot Care

My Blood Parrot has what appears as a white film coming from her gills.

This has been going on for a while, maybe about a week and a half. It is coming from both gills. It almost looks as if it is skin that is growing, but it didn't seem logical. It is not gill flukes and I have been treating her with Pimafix, because some thought it might have been a fungus. It is the end of her treatment and she has not improved. I've had her for about 6 months. She's a very healthy fish. However, she does have a Jack Dempsey as a tank mate and he is very aggressive. Upon noticing he was picking on her, I put in a tank divider so they are separated.

my red parrot fish has trouble swimming to top?

This morning he was fine swimming very active all around the tank like he always have. After I fed him and hours later he seems to have trouble swimming to the top. He tries to swim up but can't. He just bumps into things and goes to the ground. Thing is..is that he doesn't fall over. Is it because I've been feeding him too much? I've been feeding him like everyday but not too much. Or could it be something else? What can I do to help him?

Looking for advice on Media changes for our Fluval 405 water filter

Hi! We started a 55g tank late in 2010 and have had great success so far. Out of our 12 started fish, only 1 has ever died and we are pretty sure he was messed up when we bought him. He never ate very much. We currently have 3 parrot cichlids (our babies!), 4 black skirt tetras, 2 x-ray tetras, and 5 cherry barbs.

We have done regular water changes (almost always never more than 1 week between them) of 25% or so of the total water. However, I have never opened up the Fluval and cleaned or replaced any of the media.
