Is he gasping? Is the inside of his faceplate/gills reddened, blackened, or swollen? Any constipation?

What size of tank, temperature of tank, and how often is it cleaned, and what do you clean with?

Exactly - just rinse. Do you over feed? It would be nice if you could get a picture - I know how hard it is though I have to play paparrazi to get a picture with some of my fish!! Check the inside of his gills - see if it is: red, pink, black.
