I figured as much, I have never heard of a nitrite reading of 20.
Let me know if there's anything else she needs for help...

They've got both Methylene Blue and Fungus Eliminator on Dr Foster & Smith's website so if you absolutely can't find it anywhere else it may be worth ordering it...

The local LFS had both items. My friend began implementing Dawn treatment regimen yesterday afternoon. The fish is still having the issues with righting himself if he gets knocked off course, so she is watching that closely. i will keep you all posted.

Hopefully the salt can help with the swim bladder. Unfortunately, parrot fish, being such hybridized fish often have problematic swim bladders. An injury sure doesn't help :(
