I found this little guy just hanging out on the sand bed, breathing kinda heavily. I noticed he hasn't been eating as well for the past few days. Is there anything I can do to save him? Thanks.

I don't suspect brook. I got all my clowns through reputable dealers like ora. They were all in this qt tank. I'm think the platinum is beating up the others.
