I've had parrots for almost a year and I just had to get some more because unfortunately the last ones died of fin rot. I bought two larger parrots from a local fish store that had a really crappy return policy and I didn't know what it was at the time.

The larger of the two had a little white spot on its left gill and, since we've only had him for 3 days, I'm assuming it was there when we bought him. He's acting really strange and hanging out in a top corner or up by the front of the glass.

This morning I noticed his top fin was completely out of the water and he looked as if he was having some problems with his balance. He's been eating maybe every other day and I've been feeding them OSI Blood Parrot specific food and I gave them blood worms once, as a treat.

I started putting in Melafix and Pimafix in to try and take the fungus or bacteria or whatever it was to go away. I'm really worried because if he's sick, I have two other parrots in that 75 gallon tank.

If you have any possible answers, please let me know. I would appreciate it very much.
