Sick Lambchop Rasbora?

Newb21

Hi all. I’m looking for internet sleuths/doctors for one of my little guys.

I have 7 lamchop rasboras and have had them for a couple months. All have seemed to grow big and strong except one. We’ll call him Mr. Pushover. He got this name because he would roll over randomly even from the beginning. My fears of a swim bladder issue were assuaged when i learned rasboras incorporate rolling into courting or even social hierarchies sometimes. However, now he seems to roll more often, stays isolated and stationary more frequently, seems more translucent in color compared to his comrades, and also appears to open and close his mouth frequently.

I’ll attach some pictures for whatever good they may do. They’re iPhone live pictures so maybe you can hold the pictures and see his mouth moving open and closed. Thank you in advance for any diagnosis you may provide; I know it’s a long message.

Oh and it seems like he has a dead eye.

Do the other fish kind of push him out during feeding time?

I don't think so. I've watched specifically a few times and he seems to have free rein

Surface agitation? The mouth opening and closing makes me wonder if like a gasping for air?

Hmm I have a hang on the back filter that seems to do a decent job. Would he be the only one affected by such an affliction?
