So I work up with morning to see my fighter has like no fins left... He is hiding at the top of the tank near and behind the pump but I wonder why. Just as I typed this I saw the ram go in for a bite. Far out....
So we got about 8mm of fin left. All ragged and so on.
What to do?

So he had less fins left this morning as well.
I dont know what to do with him, Will he recover in time or maybe hes just too far gone. (Literally 1-2mm of fin...)
Should i remove some stock as i seem to be getting algae bloom, Maybe i should get a timer for my light and feed them less? My light is on for 14 hours a day which i read maybe too much and i feed them in the morning and a tiny bit before bed.

 

Im thinking weekly water changes on a Saturday and change about 30%.
I did one last Saturday, Cleared up for a day or two and now green cloudy again.

 

Current stock: 1 blue ram, 5 neon tetras, 1 pleco bristle nose, 6 platys, 9 fry, 1 betta.
Proposed new tank stock: 2x blue ram, 1x dwarf blue ram, 1 betta, 1 pleco.
Would the new stocking work well, Better than before and no aggression between the Cichlids and betta?
Since my betta is really buggered, should i do without him and change my stock?

This is my filter too, How do i clean this so it doesnt get blocked in a week and stop filtering out the large particles.The white media on the back goes brown and sorta algae like. If you know what i mean. They have carbon, Are there any alternatives i can use in here?
