White fins on new fish

I just got 3 Hengels Rasboras to go with the 3 I already had last night. This afternoon I noticed that one of the smaller ones Pectoral fin or Pelvic fin (its hard to tell cause its small) is white and seems to be sticking out from its body more than the others. Its hard to get a good look cause they won't stop moving. It seem to be swimming around fine and swims with the others. All the other fish seem to be fine. I haven't feed them yet so I don't know if they are eating.

Its a 20 Gallon tank that I started about 4 weeks ago
There are 6 Rasboras and 2 Corys
The Nitrates are around 20
the Nitrites are 0.5
and the last Ammonia test I did a couple days ago was at 0.1.
PH was 7.5
I did a 15% change yesterday.

Thanks

i would let things be for a week or untill things get worse of if the fish starts to stress, give its immune system a shot before you go dropping in all kinds of chems. if its even a disease at all, best of luck to you.

I would try to keep ammonia and nitrites at zero with water changes.And as Mitch mentioned,let the fish be while observing for any worsening of the condition. Most fish can recover from any manner of ailments if water parameters are favorable.
