sick parrot fish?

hi. my friend decided he did not have the time for his small aquarium any more so i inherited his only parrot fish as i did not want to see it go to a bad owner or left to die. my friends aquarium was small and filthy so i thought the little guy would thrive in my well maintained 300 litre community aquarium with excellent filtration but it seems quite the opposite. after only a day of being introduced he is laying on the bottom with clamped fins. all my other fish are completely fine. the tank has been up and running for a few years. can a fish get shock from moving to a new setup? or maybe the p.h was different? it seems crazy that he was better off in my friends filthy aquarium?

Did you acclimate to temperature and water before adding the fish? I think it's stressed
