Red coming to the skin can be a sign of high ammonia. How long has your tank been set up?

It's been going for 2 months now. All my other inhabitants are perfect. He is still breathing. He can swim but is choosing to rest on the ground. He is not on his side but just sits there breathing rapidly. My reading is either 0 or just above.

Thanks. I would rather him be gone than suffer more. :/
