Sick Male Swallowtail Angelfish

I got him in April '11 from live aquaria divers den. He is around 4in, biggest fish in tank. He stopped eating and swimming around 2 weeks ago. His tank mates are: female swallowtail, powder brown tang, bartlett anthias, flame angel pair, exquisite wrasse pair and osc black and white clowns. All are 2in except for tang 3in. Everyone else is swimming and eating. I used to do a 12% wc weekly, I missed last weeks because I didn't want to stress him.

Its a 110g tall tank. No additives, use a sump with live rock and refugium with chaeto.

He just hangs out in the back corner behind rocks. He doesn't scratch against anything and he doesn't have any spots or blemishes. The last fish addition was the clowns in July.

Anyone have an idea whats wrong with him?
