The only thing I can think of is that he has a fungus infection. Before he started showing signs of being ill, I did a water change and found the heater to be covered in a foul smelling mold. I immediately washed everything and put him in a different tank. His tank is now mold free.
When he does sit at the top of his tank, he will eat, but if he's down on the bottom he wont and he swims like his swim bladder is affected, but i don't see any bloating.
