    If it is voltage, then adding the ground probe will let you see if it was the cause. If he gets better, then you'll know. Then you can find out which of your equipment was leaking stray voltage and fix it.

    Is he eating at all? If it's a parasite, it would soon infect your other fish. No one's bullying him? What other fish do you have in there?
