Something's definitely up with him. Is he a crowntail or vailtail? What size tank? Any tank mates? Is it cycled? Heated? How long have you had him? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH readings?

I have yet to test the water again, but he is in a cycled, filtered, and heated 5 gallon. I just recently moved him from a 1.5gal to the 5gal. Not sure on his type, I didn't buy him myself. I used to feed him frozen food, then switched to pellets. He has changed color from when I first got him.

You really need to know your readings, so either get your water tested at the lfs or pick up the API master kit (about $23 online).

How often do you do water changes?

I have recently done a water change a few days ago. I don't do them as often as I should.

The smaller the tank, the more diligent you have to be with water changes.
