"I just recently bought a blood parrotfish, a week and a half ago. I bought it from walmart and took it home and named him "phin". I noticed he had ick. I called the pet store and found out I was reaching none of the requirements for this type of fish at all. He was in a 1.5 gallon tank on the count of I did not know he would grow to the size of a foot ball. The ammonia level in the tank was always sky high because I did not know about the action of cycling the tank.( The ick was not my fault it was walmart's...and I will never buy a fish from there again.) I had no idea that the temp. was supposed to be arond 78. So we ended up spending over $150 just on a fish that itself cost $15. We went and got a 14 gal. tank, a heater, 3 packs of gravel, a coral cave, fake plants, a thermometer, and a pretty metalic blue background. He is now cured from the ick and his gills are growing back since they were being burned from the ammonia level. He is now very shy because we put him through a lot, and he stays hidden inside his cave. When he does come out and is swimming, he will notice I am looking at him and swim VERY quickly back to the cave. He is now more comfortable now that he has something to hide in instead of being out in the open 24/7. When he was out in the open, he would go to the back corner and lay flat on his side to try and be invisible. I felt so sorry for the little guy. Now I know I better do some research before I go buy some exotic fish like this. I am now planning to put 2-3 tiger barbs in with him/her."
