Grayness/ darting/ darkened fins


grayness around his gills and on his stomach


Injured Pelvic fin

So what can I do for him other than keeping the water clean, warm, and adding salt? His temperatures at about... 77?
And also his scales on his forehead and a bit on his side are still missing... But seem to be growing back... But guys he doesn't seem well... He's darting like crazy opening and closing his mouth, like I said he's getting grayness around his gills... what can I do?

Which means salt baths and water changes are in order.

EDIT - You mentioned you've got those bases covered. I'm not sure what else you could do to treat him. Have you tested the water? Could be something funky lurking. Try keeping him in a dark area, or wrapping a dark towel around his tank to reduce any stress. If anything progresses, you could always whip out some medications, but those always seem to be a last resort.
