What ate your water parameters ? Do you have video pics? We might be able to help you out a little more if you provided this info.

Is he swimming slowly when he crashes into everything? Or does he get spooked and crashed into everything and swims slowly at other times?

How long have you had him and have you made any changes to his tank recently?

Strange, I would definitely check the water parameters because something is stressing him. Have you made any changes to his tank? Or how about changes around his tank, like lighting or something different. I was thinking maybe you added a lamp or something and now the shadows are different on his tank and that's spooking him.

Also maybe get some dithers for the tank, that may calm him down. Maybe some giant danions or tiger barbs.

Sorry to hear that. Do you have any other fish in the tank with him? I would still check the water parameters to see if anything was off.

Sorry for the loss. Keep an eye on your water parameters . It is very important. It tells you what you can't see.
