Looks like it has a sunken belly. Maybe some sort of internal parasite. How long since it stopped eating?

Try adding some salt. Maybe melafix or an antibiotic like metronidazole.

Sick

He's way sunk. +Melafix, and some kind of anti-biotic, or anti-parasite. Seachems Paraguard is my favorite. But kinda hard to get.
Do lots of water changes as well.
Hopefully he'll get his appetite back, then hell want to eat and sleep.
