How many 1-2 inch cichlids could I safely have in my 55 gal (I know to add them gradually.)

    I have a 4-5 inch red blood parrot with a white spit on her Gil. It's about the size of a pencil eraser. She isn't eating or acting herself. What can I do?

    There's not much I can do without a photo. For now do the usual, clean water more often, help break down the food so that she can swallow easier and then give her something like a multi cure. I don't keep cichlids so I wouldn't know exactly what it is.

    Sorry your blood parrot isn't feeling well, do you think you can provide a pic? There a couple of things it could be, but a pic would really help in narrowing it down. Thank you in advance

    Also, what are the parameters of the tank as well as any tankmates
