Yellow tang sick

My yellow tang is sick! He swims with his snout towards the bottom of the tank and he is trying to hide in caves and under rocks. His color is a healthy bright yellow. I have seen him stressed before and he gets really pale. He is a good color now.

I just noticed this today. I changed my filter yesterday. The other fish are doing fine and the levels appear to be ok. Does he have swim bladder trouble? How do I know?

What can I do?
