Hmm, he does look pale. What other tank mates does he have? How big is the tank? Is he eating?

I would recommend feed Him garlic extract on it's food to help boost his immune system and reduce stress.

If you have nitrites then your tank is not cycled = that's bad! Do some PWC to get it down to 0. Definitely try the garlic guard and feed regularly along with a meaty mix, all fish need a varied diet. Seaweed (for the tang) mysis, brine etc

How much rock do you have in the tank? A new filter for a 55g shouldn't have caused another mini cycle.
