Parrot fish typically develope black patches in response to poor water quality or stress with nitrites of one it more then likely you have ammonia as well what I would do is test daily for ammonia and nitrite and do daily 30%-50% water changes depending of how high a reading you get and add a double dose of prime to help detoxify any ammonia or nitrite till it constantly test at zero for a week and you have  nitrate reading below 40 @Waterlife
