Ok, just some basic questions: What size tank/bowl is he in? Do you have a heater? What's the temperature of the water? How often do you clean the tank/bowl? Sorry for all the questions but it'll help us help you. :)

Ok, the tank size is great, but he's probably cold. They need a constant temperature...fluctuating temperatures will cause them to become lethargic, not eat, hide, lose color etc. Also, doing water changes even though they're small, every day is probably stressing him out. For a 2G, you could get away with one 100% and 50% water changes a week. If it's a 3G, than you can do one 100% water change a week.

Yeah the temp is probably the problem. Get him a heater and he'll be fine.
