Water changes need to be increased. 1 gallon bowls every three to four days should be cleaned 90% (or 100% cupping the fish). The temperature is much too cold... It is recommended to be at 78-80 degrees. The filter may be pushing him around as well.

With the lesser cleanings, the colder water, and the fact he tail bites (I can see that as plain as day from the picture) shows he is stressed, and that can lead to his immune system crashing... And leading to sickness. He could have columnaris, if it is fuzzy... Or have smacked into something to have scraped the scales off. The white, would then be slime coat trying to heal the body.

What ornaments do you have in there?

Edit: His fins are not ugly. They are DAMAGED. I would not recommend ever adding AQ or Epsom salt unless he actually had something. Epsom is for internal, aquarium salt for external. Plus when AQ salt is added it must be pre-dissolved.

ok, thank you Sena. I was ordering a 5 gallon tank for him but i am leaving now to buy it.
he has a silk plant and a moonstone cave.
arent the amount of water changes i am doing along with the filter greater than 100 every three to four days? i do 25-50 every 3rd day and 100 percent weekly, at least this week i did 100 percent twice.
