I would advise doing whatever you can to get your nitrates as low as possible. Monitor them daily, and if the daily water changes need to be 50% to get nitrates down to 20 (or no more than 20 above your tap water levels), then do that.
Keep dried food to a minimum or avoid feeding it altogether, and only feed pea (which the fish may come to recognise as food) or else live/frozen bloodworm or daphnia, and hopefully this in combination with the water changes might help.
