Got another possible "sickie"

My Bolivian Ram has been acting a little strange lately. He's been staying on the opposite side of the tank than he usually does. And not that interested in eating, although he's eating a little. I can't tell if he has "spots" on him or not, but near his head/jaw area seems to be a little more gray than it used to. Can you tell anything by these pictures? He didn't move very fast when I put a bamboo stick in there either. I sure hope its not another case of columnaris.

The fish appears to be free of ich spots, if those were the kind of spots you were concerned about. I believe columnaris shows up in patches. I don't mean to nitpick your word choice - just trying to make sure that we're on the same page. Are you looking at along it's back?

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir

He's acting just fine now, and eating well. Go figure. I guess he just had a slow day or something. Thanks!
