Help Please!

I have a 4" Parrot Fish in my 35 gallon tank.  I did a water change 4 days ago and a 2 days later I noticed he had a gash right next to his mouth.  I immediately put stress coat in the tank and have added it everyday since which is what the pet store told me to do.  It has been two days and it looked like it was healing and I saw what looked to be a white spot inside the wound.  He is eating and swimming and of course not as aggressive to the other Parrot's in the tank but all in all seems normal.  I have tested my water

My poor George passed this afternoon.  Ms. Jayne has recovered and the rest of the feeders and catfish appear fine, but the infection was too much for him:(

Can somebody help me?

The "Big Guy" is fading.  I've never seen him this color before.  I am thinking that it has to do with the water quality.  I can't keep it balanced, its like 6.2??  I think?

Possible emergency...

There is a hurricane warning for P.R. and we lose electric power almost every week may be one to three hours per week. Im worried for my Jellybeans P and C (2 in a 55gl) and a little Jewel (Rubi) in a 10 gl, wich I wanted to move today to a 55gl, but we have to get ready in case we get hit..Does anyone knows how to keep them ok in case that power goes out? Do battery filters do the job? Any help is greatly app! Thanks! By the way, hurricane is supposed to pass very close or hit tomorrow evening.God bless us, and you too.

Please help...Kizzy cannot breathe

Hello, everyone. I am near tears. Last night I spent 30mins gently holding my bright orange Blood Parrot, Kizzy, near bubbles from an air stone and tube. I had her in a hospital tank, along with her younger buddy, LuLu (for company).

Kizzy's gills were struggling for air and she was floating otherwise motionless upside down~ whereas all the other fish were fine. Kizzy is the largest(about 5"; a few ounces heavy) so I assumed her lungs required more air but didn't know if that was the only problem so I set up the hospital tank. She got better. Until ....
