Mmmm, right now hes in a 2g, right? Sorry that I can't remember! =(

If he is, I'd take him out and place him in a cup or container for a moment, and then thuroughly clean his entire tank (No soap, just hot water on -everything-; the bowl, ornaments, gravel, filter, heater. Let nothing go untouched. Afterwards fill up his freshly cleaned tank with good water, condition, let it sit for a few hours and take the temp after that. If the temps where it needs to be, place him back in there.

If his coloring is draining, and turning grey, it definently might be an actually disease.... Pictures please? =D

ok dont know if you'll notice it but just behind his head is this greyish area. there are other parts of his body that look like this but he seems to be the happiest hes been since i got him he snaps at his food like Air Jaws I don't know I just thought he had poor coloring or something and it does seem to effected by light and time of day as for the rest of his body.

I hope so now about the same time I started adding the salt to his water I also added another taller plant that spreads through most of his tank. I was watching him today lounging on the leaves lol pretty funny to see a fish swim onto a leaf and just sit there staring up at you breathing air lol
