Need advice - sick bala shark

Hey I have two 2 inch bala sharks still babies I guess had them for 4 months no problems. Just this week, I have noticed that one of the bala sharks has shrunk in size, like it's mid section is very thin, looks like it has lost weight mean while the other has gotten bigger, non of the other fish have gotten smaller and all look healthy. Today I noticed him just floating around taking breaks while trying to move around the tank and sinking and trying to swim upwards. having a hard time moving I guess.

I have removed it in a 1 gallon healing tank and used water from the tank and put in some healing drops... He still looks weak and not swimming around very much.

Any ideas?
