Could you provide actual test result numbers from you testing the water? What kit are you using to test the water?

I don't know what he has or if he has anything. Its obvious he is discolored because he is stressed heavily. I don't see how its ich. There are not white spots anywhere but keep an eye out because when fish are stressed, that's when those ich parasites are able to attack way better.

It is not a dwarf but a thicklipped.
Provide it with some plants in the QT.
That will prevent the stresspart for a bit.
Don't see exactly what you're talking about.

From what has been said, you only had the fish a couple of days. It can take a week or more for a new fish to fully settle and colour up. The poor thing is severely stressed out...he was caught at the shop, plonked into a bag, carried home, put into a new (to him) aquarium, taken back out of the aquarium and plonked into a different tub.

You would be off colour and stressed out too if you had gone through all of that in a matter of two days.
