Yes, try Metronidazole. If he is lethargic and won't eat, it probably is bloat. Treat the whole tank. This is basically a gastrointestinal problem, they can't eat and feel lousy. Eventually their belly fills up with fluid (bloated) before death.

Seems like you had full fish stock in the tank pretty quickly, may not be as cycled as you think. Poor water quality is the main problem, then when they get stressed from being moved around or pecking order issues they can get sick.
