First off, do you have a filter, heater and a sufficent sized tank? What are your water parameters (ammonia, pH, nitrates and nitrites)? What is your partial water change schedule? What are you feeding him and do you feed him in the same area of the tank?

If you have the proper set up with a good partial water change schedule, he has a proper diet, and all your water parameters are normal then it could be that the light is too bright and is temporarily blinding him.

how long do you have the light on each day? What type of lighting do you have?
