Hi everyone! My friend bought this fish in a pet store, to me it looks like a regular blood parrot but the guy at the store sold it to him as a king kong parrot. It was really red when he bought it but 3 weeks later he is starting to look orange and it looks like is missing scales, otherwise he looks healthy.
My friend gave it to me and i brought him home in put him in a 40 gallon tank already cycled and plenty of filtration all the water parameters are perfect and he is been feed hikari cichlid pellets. I am suspecting this is one of those fish they dye/tattoo that is why of the missing scales but i hope someone with more experience with this type of fish can help. he was in a 20 gallon tank at my friends house by himself and i tested his water and it was fine. Now he is by himself in the 40 gallon hoping he recovers so i can move him to a 90 gallon tank with an 4" oscar.
