First may I ask if the fish is a Red Empress? If yes you probably don't want him with the mbuna (red tops, etc.).

What are the dimensions of your tank?

For the stringy feces (thready and clear or white?) I would use metronidazole. Is he eating?

IDK about the patches, dents or fungus growth.

I would stop the chemicals other than dechlor...depending on the parameters of your tap water. I would stop feeding bloom worms.

Even with 2X weekly 50% water changes, you should have some nitrate unless your tank is not cycled. Are you shaking the regeant bottle and test tube mix enough according to the directions?
