    What are water parametars? Is tank cycled? Dose he have some body changes?

    In first hand and without more information i can only suggest to remove him in quarantine and to give him some immunity buster like voogle.

    I don't know then if you did check all parameters and you are 100% sure that you don't have ammonia or nitrite levels up.

    I would just look at it and it's behavior for some time.
    It could be some internal problem like parasites but i can't be sure. Dose he poop?

    Try feed him some frozen blanched peas without skin and dip it in garlic oil that make them crazy for eating. You could buy some immunity buster like easylife voogle or something similar.

    After that if he isn't better and there aren't any other signs i would maybe treat him in quarantine for internal parasits.
