Well I dont know what the smell of fish could mean. But we had a bird with bad breath and when we took him to the vet, it turned out he had a lung infection. It wasnt something contagious and how he got it, was not clear but the only symptom he had was bad breath.

You might want to get it checked out, if it goes on.

No problem, yeah I'd keep an eye out for it and for other signs of sickness, if it does comeback. You know like, ruffled feathers, not really sleeping, or puffed up and just perching, lack of appetite (the amount of food not eaten), unusual stool, moody or other changes in regular behavior. That would help you decide if you need the vet or not, as well.

All the best :)
