Help Cichlid wont swim with tail

Hi I am new to posting and also new to asking for help with my tank. I have had it up and running for a little over a year with no issues. I have a dwarf flag cichlid that wont swim using his tail. He does swim but no longer with his tail. I am not sure whats wrong if it could be a parasite. My other 15 or so fish in the tank are doing well and all my water parameters are within range. He also has no visible signs of stress, or disease but he does lay on the aquarium floor sometimes now.
