Ok, you're really overstocked. Not necessarily the cause of the problem but it's something that needs adressing.
What are your water parameters? in such an overstocked tank they are going to be very difficult to keep on top of. Bad water quality could lead to stress on the fish - possiby why he is trying to get out?
there are also a lot of quite territorial fish in there that could be agressive with him. I know nothing about this fish in particuar but i think they too could be quite agressive, leading to territory issues and general nipping, bullying etc.
The colour duling could be to do with stress from other fish, bad water quality issues, anything that causes him not to be too happy.
