That tank looks to be a 1g right? So to prevent displacing the water and moving him too often you can use a small gravel vacuum or a turkey baster. I have not smartened myself up into buying a vac yet and I make all my weekly changes with the turkey baster. It takes a bit longer but the fish can stay in the water while I do it.

Its actually 13.5liters which is 3.5 gallons the camera makes it look small

Im okay doing 100% daily changes, i just scoop him into one of those little plastic take away containers and do what i have to do, float him in the new water to get the temp and slowly add the new water to his cup over 30-45 mins =) works wonders its just a time constraint i have with work, some days im working until 12am and i cant go about fussing with the tank and wake up the neighbours (apartment living FML)

He certainly has perked up since being home with me instead of stuck in a tiny over crowded tank

I would try to get IAL asap. I find its safer to use long term than some of the chemical meds you can buy locally. I think missing scales are nothing much to worry about as long as you keep an eye on them for infection or discoloration.
