Honey Gourami

Looking for suggestions. I'm still having issues with my Honey Gourami.

Purchased 2/11 I believe, 2/14-15 near death, no outward signs of disease at that time. She gradually has lost a good bit of color over the past week. 2/14 I did a 25% change next day seemed a bit better, 2/16 was in the top third of the tank wiggling about a bit, 2/16-2/18 did 10ick - 15% water changes nightly. I think it was 2/17 she started to go down hill again. She hasn't eaten for 2 days. She is sitting on the bottom in the corner, she only moves when the male comes and nudges her face a couple of times and then proceeds to chase her around the tank and back.

Params taken yesterday are unchanged from 2/15 PH 8, ammonia 1, nitrite .25 and 0 nitrates. This tank is still cycling. There are live plants. Occupants 2 Honey Gouramis. The other seems to be thriving and has shown interest in hand feeding.

I can't move them to the other tank due to an ick outbreak from a new occupant also purchased on 2/11.

Would it help to do a larger water change?

Water changes are about the best you can do in this situation.

Would it help to do more than 10-15%? My initial water consisted of half new water half cycled water from other tank.

Should be of help. Do it once a day daily.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
