Hi again,

I've literally just checked on the tank and tested the water. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and 5 nitrate... His condition seems to be getting worse too. The wide stuff on his dorsal fin is spreading. I dont think that the water is infected because the other fish are all pretty well. I've removed him from the tank and put him in a massive bowl and added some prime.

What do I do next??!
