HELP!!!!! My fish looks like he's dieing

My silver tipped columbian shark looks like he's dieing Ive had him now for about 8 months and they've been in my cycled 180 for about 2 months, nothing is wrong with the other fish but hes swims real weak then stops and just kind of floats to the bottom breaths really heavy and then swims a little more, hes getting worse by the hour, he's been swimming around the tank non stop for the past 3 weeks and hasnt really eatin much, please help, i really dont want to lose him, but i fear its to late

Sorry about that.

I think your problem is that they are brackish fish for the most part. The long-term fresh might have done something wrong.

I might also, were it me,, Employ the use of some power heads for water movement if you aren't already. If so ,, maybe larger ones are needed. As the particular fish you have grow larger, I would try and provide as much oxygen and water movement as possible. just my opinion.
