Your PH is a little low. I'd shoot for 8.2 and... I've never heard of Alkalinity being at 300... What did you measure it in? Dkh? That may be the problem.

Does he eat well?

What are you feeding it? Frozen and live will encourage it to eat more than flake

Sorry about your loss, unless the Brine is vitamin enriched, it has no nutritional value. The Tetra brand strips suck. Trust me. I've been there before. Get an API master kit, or you can invest in better ones such as Red Sea, Seachem, Salofert, Elos, Hanna Checkers.
