Unfortunately if this poor fish is still in the 20 gallon it will never reach the size it needs to be to see its true colours.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Don't worry about ph until you get a test kit. You will need to let 1 cup of tap water sit on the counter for 24 hours before testing for ph.
