My Blood Parrot, mango was making her nest when all of a sudden, she picked up a rock and didn't spit it out. About a day and a half later, here she is, with the rock still in her mouth! She's acting very shy, she doesn't move around much, and she's missed two meals already! She's only two inches long, so I don't think I can pull it out with my fingers or tweezers or anything. What should I do? My other Blood Parrot, OJ is eating all her food because she can't swallow anything! I'm afraid she's going hungry or suffocating! HELP!

I would say your best bet would be to try and catch her and take the rock out with tweezers, otherwise she will for sure die of hunger, unless she gets smart, hope everything goes well, I have NEVER heard of this happening, my cichlids move rocks all the time.

the fish won't suffocate Rolling Eyes
but yeah you may have to try and catch the fish and strip the rock.
