Flame Angel fin

The left front fin on our flame angel doesn't look so good. It looks like it's rotting away. Kind of a transparent milky white and the tips are frayed. He actually swims a bit on his right side "/" because he uses the right fin most of the time. He does use his bad fin occasionally. He is eating well, color is good and no signs of any thing else going on. All other fins look great. I tried taking pics but none turned out well enough to give you a visual.

Ph 8.2
Nrites 0
Trates 20
Ammonia 0
SG 1.023
Temp 80-81f

I first noticed it about 5 days ago and it hasn't gotten better or worse. I'm not panicing (yet) just thought I'd get some of your thoughts.

Do a few good sized water changes over the next week with well aged SW. Nitrates at 20 ppm are not normally that much a concern if just an FO tank but will definately contribute to fungal/bacterial problems once present.

Depending on what you feed, also be sure to soak foods in quality marine vitamin to help boost the natural immune system of the fish.

Any aggression from other fish?

Cheers
Steve

We have one fasle perc clown, a yellow tang and the angel. The tang and angel are best buds (or so it seems) They are about the same size and were indroduced at the same time.
