scales coming off
 
my turquoise severums scales look like they are falling off. there are bald patches on the left side of his body. is this tied in to my blood parrots itching and scratching. my severum doesn't scratch though

acually yes. my parrot cichlid nips at it but it is almost like the severum wants it to

Parrots aren't generally good community fish. I would consider returning him/her.
