Exclamation weird scale color?

Scuito has been feeling a little bit better from his sluggishness lately. Last night I noticed that he has a black stripe by his top fin (I don't know what it's called, the fin on top of their backs). He is blue and has a black face but this stripe is new, and its on BOTH sides. (His is the fish in my avatar)

What is it? And what do I do?

I dont see anything abnormal. But how big of container is the poor guy in? His fins look like they are shriveling up.

He is recovering from being sick. He would just sleep all day long at the bottom of the tank only coming up for air. Now he sleeps towards the top of the water and swims around a bit more
