Exclamation Red parrot fishes acting strange!

Hello all,

I hope this reaches someone soon. I have had these red parrot fish for almost six years. Today I noticed that they swam to the top of the tank, started to loose their color, and are swimming erratically. I've never seen them have all these symptoms in one, and I am very confused and very scarred. I tried turning off the lights in the tank, which helped but only temporarily. I have left the light off, but they are still acting the same and I dont know what to do. We changed their water last week, and they were acting okay up to today. I don't know what to do.:banghea d:

What's the lifespan of parrot fish? Maybe they are getting old.
What are your water parameters?
