What's wrong with gibbs?!

I just got home and I saw he was at the bottom of his tank, which he never does that and I saw him swim up really sluggish and I noticed he's really white underneath his mouth the whole back a little past his side fins! and his side fins are a little see through!!

I switched his water conditoner to stree coat fish and water conditioner that makes tap water safe forfish and contains the healing power of aloe vera and i just got him a peace lily Thursday.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?!



This is what he looks like right now ^^^^^^^^^



that was him BEFORE now.

I honestly wish I could tell you. My little Cass has a white belly, and she changed colour a lot. Some can even do it a bit in regards to moods. I'd try messaging Sakura on here about it with a link to the thread, but I'm not quite sure what it could be. I would also recommend filling out the information on the pinned topic about tank conditions to help folks like Sakura narrow down the possible culprit!
