Fish acting sick and dying! Help.
 
Ok, so my molly just up and died on me 2 days ago, he wasnt acting sick or anything, just died. Now all im left with is my blood parrit and goldfish and the suckerfish.

Now, yesterday the parrit is acting sick. He normally is all over the place, but now is lying on the botton of the tank, only moving for food. He just sits there for hours. The day before yesterday, i cought him staring at himself in the glass for an hour.

My ph is fine, and my city water has a ammon level of 2.0, but i detoxed it when i did a water change this weekend. What could it be? Ive had the fish for abouot 2 months now.

Can you give more information please?
What are ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels? Do you use a liquid test kit or strips?
Are you familiar with the nitrogen cycle?
What size tank?
What is the filtration?
What is the temperature of the water? Goldfish are temperate but parrots are tropical.

Your fish are heavy waste producers. I suspect that an uncycled tank is your problem, but without knowing this information, it's hard to say.
