Unhappy My fancy goldfish is always led on the gravel


Here is a pic of my fancy goldfish doing what he has always done for the past 9 or so months...

He eats fine as soon as I put some food in.

He lives with 3 other fish. 3 other fancy goldfish, two of which don't have the goggley eyes. All the rest have always lived happily but this one has been sat on the bottom for a good 9 months now.

Is there something wrong with it or is that just the way he is? The other fish never attack him and when I do my water changes every week he soon scuttles about avoiding the vaccuum

The water is perfect. I'm just at a loss trying to understand why he acts this way.

Any help appreciated

Please answer the question about tank size, I could help figure out the problem, if there is one.
