Itching and Scratching Help!

a few weeks ago, i posted a topic about sctaching of my blood parrot.

the forum said it is normal for fish to scratch so i left them alone.

yesterday i noticed that all of my fish was scrtaching except my pleco. i have 1 blood parrot, 4 tiger barbs, 1 turquoise severum, and a pleco.

My fish keeps scrtaching constantly on my clay pot and my youngest barb's black strips have turned gray. What should i do? :(

Please help!

Hi there Kevin. Looking closely at your fish, are there any marks at all on the fins/body?

And could you post readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

Get the API liquid kit. You don't run out as fast either.

This is the song that never ends...
