Fish might not make it.

Is this the beginning of the end for this ebjd? In my past experience it is only a matter of time now. It hangs out at the bottom of the tank all day and only moves when it's feeding time. I have another in the tank that is very active but this guy may be going to meet his maker. What do y'all think?

Have you treated for internal parasites? More background on the situation would help.

Is the fish eating? If so then I'd lean towards stress. They usually stop eating and wither away. Then dose with General Cure by API or nuke them with Clout my Mardel.

Fish is eating. Just not doing anything else.

That fish looks stressed, look at the darkened body color. Is the others picking on him?

The only other fish with it is another ebjd that has been with it since day one. They are from the same spawn. I haven't noticed any aggressive behavior towards it by the other fish.

I'd add a light crate divider, this will ensure the other fish is not acting hostile towards it. It should look like this.
