My gosh he looks horrible! Was he like this when you got him? How long has he been like this? You said the amonia wasn't right correct? It might be suffering severe amonia burns.

Im not 100% sure though I would wait until someone else chimes in. Hope the little guy pulls through.

Can you give us any information beyond "fine" for the water parameters?

My guess would be some sort of external parasite.

You say the ammonia and "stuff" aren't high.
There can be no readings for ammonia and nitrites other than zero ,and nitrAtes should be no higher than 20ppm. These readings are achieved through a properly cycled tank with healthy biological fiter and weekly water changes using a dechlorinator such as PRIME or AMQUEL+ for new water added to the aquarium BEFORE adding the water.
Fish I have seen that look like the photo were often subjected to SALT in the aquarium which is not to be used in freshwater aquarium unless treating for ICH and then,, only if ICH is confirmed and at proper doseage.
