I would do another water change (or more) to eliminate the nitrites. The nitrates will go down with them. Be sure when keeping fish in a QT
you use a small airhose to syphon out detritus and uneaten foods daily. This will greatly cut down on water quality issues. If the fish is otherwise healthy and eating well, try only feeding every second day.
If you do ever need to treat the QT
and you remove the rock, do not place it in the main. Either use a seperate container or let it air dry. Any parasite may be transfered even if it was only a short time. Transfering anything btween QT
and display is not advisable even if you may think it to be safe
