Powder blue Cichlid behavior concerns

I have a powder blue that was running my 60g tank, so much so that he spent most days keeping everyone pinned to glass up at the top. Nobody could move in his tank.
Saturday As I was watching tv and my tank, I finally had enough and put him in my 30g QT that is running and maintaned 24/7. For the first time my fish in my main tank are swimming and enjoying the entire tank. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the boss. He has not eaten a thing, he is hiding with all of his fins clamped, which he has never done. If he even sees a reflection of anyone even the dog he goes nuts, so much so that water crashes out the top of the tank. I honestly feel and believe that he had a nervous breakdown so to speak and he's basically killing himself at this point and will never recover.
Im horrified and feel absolutely terrible now and don't know what to do.
Has anyone had this happen or heard of it? If so any advive would be very welcome.
