Silver Shark Not Eating

I am new to this forum, so please bear with me. I bought some tropical fish about 3 months ago including 1 silver shark, who doesn't seem to have grown and he is not eating, he is floating around half the time with his head down.

I did see him originally eat just a little and thought maybe he prefers to pick up the bits that float to the bottom. He is not picked on by any of the other fish, but he is looking in dire need now. I do have him isolated in the hospital tank at the moment to observe better. Any help would be appreciated. Water tests for PH, ammonia and nitrate are all fine.
Thanks.

You silver shark is sick. I would go to the pet store and ask the store what product you need to add to your water. Normally, they sell drops to put in the water for different types of skin diseases. Look at his fins to make sure they are not breaking off in small pieces.

If he is swimming with his head down, that is not a good sign. Go back to the pet store and see what special food or medications he can have.
