Hey guys am new to the forum and the aquarium hobby. I have 1 blood parrot and 5 angelfish in a 75 gallon tank. My bp just started swmming in circles at the bottom of the tank. I did a water change as soon as I saw him like that due to my ammonia levels starting to rise as well as the nitrates. Can anyone help?

what is your ammonia like?
Use some seechem prime. That binds ammonia. Noticed any redness around the fishes gills?

Shiv 234 thanks in advance.

Ammonia its between 0 ppm and .25 ppm, nitrite its 0 ppm, and nitrate its 0 ppm. It seems lije he has some redness around gill. Also I notice that only the right side gill is moving, the left gill looks kind of open if that makes sense. I keep an eye on him over night and it seem like he never stop circling
