  1. Default my albino BN is turning red

    ok, my BN is turning red under his skin. is it because of my royal and him fighting. my amonnia is giving me a spike of .25 since i added my royal and sev. I have been doing 2 5gallon bucket wc everyday to combat the poop till we move. I have tons of driftwood in my tank so they have there own territories. a while back my rubberlip died so i did add a femal BN, but they have been fine; so i doubt that is it. I am really not worried about my amonnia spike that much either since my emerald cats and other plecos dont seem to be changed or bothered. my parrots are laying eggs again and being a bit of a terror atm. Could that be it; if not idk.

    Further inspection shows small gashes on his side, what is he fighting with, parrots or royal pleco. also only place i can move him at moment is a divided 10 for my bettas, will he be fine on one side

    If it was only the top that got red/pinkish I would say that is normal, indicates he is ready to breed. The most probable thing based on your statement would be that your parrots are breeding right now, did your rubber lip die while your parrots were laying eggs also? If so I would do the preventative thing and temporarily house him in the betta tank, make sure you do even more water changes as that is a considerably heavy bio load.

    the rubber lip was a petsmart fish, so thats what I expected. It was no where the breeding parrots. yea i do a weekly 50% WC then now i do a 10 gallon change a day, till I set my 125, which will be about a week and 1/2

    Considering 2 factors. One, he's been fighting. Two, he's an albino, I'd say the sudden redness would be bruising under his armor and because he's an albino it's just more visible
