Is it stringy? It could be flukes. I’d medicate him for some sort of fungal disease. Maracyn Oxy helps with specific fungal diseases as well as most bacterial diseases. That with a 25% water change for 10 days. I’m not the biggest fish disease expert, and the photo is a little blurry, but maracyn Oxy or maybe even aquarium salt could help!

The swimming erratically means he is most likely in pain/discomfort

Fin damage? Do you think it’s torn fins or fin rot?
