Bolivian ram not eating

My bolivisn ram started out good in my tank for about a week I saw him eating pellets, bloodworms. Now for the last few days I have not seen him eat he looks like he is thinning out also. I have a 29 gallon. Fully cycled I keep the temp at 80. He stopped eating after I did a 50 % water change on Thursday. My tank is pretty stocked I have 6 neons, bn pleco, 6 peppered corries, 6 diamond tetras, 4 dwarf neon rainbow fish. It is a planted tank.

Thank you
Is he pooping? What color?
Did you remember dechlorinator?
And spots or fuzz?
20ppm of nitrate is quite high for rams and neon rainbows. That could be effecting him.

I think there is too much going on in the tank for him. Too many fish possibly?

Do the other fish seem to bother him? Does he chase them or them him? Does he shy away from them? Does he have somewhere to hide if needed?

You've had him less than 2 weeks? He could just be getting use to his new home.
