Unhappy Sick Fish Help - Advice

I have a 180 and all the water parameters are in check - even had my LFS confirm.
I have an EBJD that all of a sudden is on the bottom hiding and wont eat. fins are down and looks miserable. He is only about 4 inches so not even close to full grown.

All the other fish are fine including a smaller JD (2.5'') and a Blue Acara. (3'')

Anything thought? he looks like he's on the road to death.

Thanks

EBJDs are very fragile fish and it could be any number of things. It could be something like bloat or an internal parasite. Sorry to hear about your fish. EBJDs are very beautiful.

I think they used to be fragile years ago but I have seen a great many of these fish thrive. I got him at 1/2 an inch long and he was a beast right up to 4 inches. They are weakest at the 1/2 inch size but steadily get stronger and healthier as they grow. Well except in my case.
