What is his water temp if you have a thermometer in there? It should be between 76-80,anything lower they will appear sluggish. You can do salt baths for that,I just used aquarisol though. Didnt seem to help much I am afraid,I ended up with dead fish. Ich and Velvet are nasty things that can come on fast and fatal. I hope thats not this guys case. There is a section on this forum for diseases,maybe take a look at that?

I hope he pulls through - I'm so sorry to hear he's not doing well. I have no idea what to tell you though on the subject :(
