Sick Scarlet Badis

My Scarlet badis just lies there for the past two days. When I first got him he was energetic eating and swimming in the plants. I have two and this one never really colored up much but compared to the way he is now there is definitely a problem. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Almost all info says they demand live food?
You have no live food to offer?
This may be the problem?
My LFS had a tank of those guys also.It looked all male to me,but I don't know if that is a big problem.They did not seem to like each other I will say?

IV kept badis for a few a months. An I hardly feed them live foods. They ate flakes, shrimp pellets etc . I think it something else. Not saying they don't cause I read also they love live foods or recommended for them.

How many of them? Do you have in the tank? M to f ratio? What other fish are in the tank?

Usually people only come across males. Females are extremely rare in the trade, but my other badis (also male) is thriving he has bright coloration eats well and I've had these guys for about a month so it could be something he picked up at the lfs possibly. What it is I'm not sure.

He certainly is not the alpha male so that could definitely be a possibility

I think he passed overnight somehow. Strange no sign of anything just gone. All other fish are fine, I'm beginning to think it was just something with the petstore.
