HELP RED BLOOD PARROT FISH WITH A giant thing on the nose
 
So there is something growing at the nose one of my fishes seems to have had this happen before but I was able to stop it by buying some medication. Im sure its just a disease but just to make sure is it HITH disease? Because I put the medication into the tank already and I just wanted to be sure. Here are some pictures

Not sure about the disease...but 8 Blood Parrots and 2 Pleco's seems like a lot of fish in a 30g aquarium.

i know this please do not tell me. They are HAPPY =) for real. the pleco's are pretty small and i clean the tank a lot so it doesn't get too dirtyy..

I honestly fail to believe you when you say the BP's are happy. They don't even have room to swim!

what kit are u using? The lowest reading above 0 for nitAtes on my kit is 5ppm *scratches head*

Blood parrots reach what, 8" each? They have a bioload of a 16" fish. The plecs, without knowing what specie they are, can easily outgrow yoru tank.

Did you ask your BP's if they are happy? Would you like living in a small container with 9 other people and you all live in your waste?

This is what Bettababy has really helped me with; take a piece of paper, and cut it into 8 8" pieces, with 2 5-10" pieces of paper. Place them in front of your tank. Is there really enough room for everybody?

How are you 'trates only .01? Either your tank is not cycled, or you used your test kit wrong. A tank with live inhabintants should always have more than 2ppm of 'trates.

The best thing you can do right now is to get everybody out and into proper homes.

Can we have a full-tank shot please?
