Unhappy Please help...sick blood parrot! :(

My fish has a white lump at the base of her left fin that developed over the last weak and has slowly grown to the size of maybe...half a pea? pretty small. She has stopped using her left fin and started floating/resting upside down. She does not look bloated. Any suggestions? I dont know what I can do to help!

I'm not sure if your fish is still alive since it has been 4 days, but, could you post a photo of this? It will give us a better idea as to what the problem might be.

Also please post your water parameters.

The first thing that came to my mind is Lymphocystis. Do the symptoms match it?

Lymphocystis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
