The fish seems to have a columnaris or fungal infection. You can try dosing the tank with eSha 2000, but he looks too far gone to me. The other thing is to try and establish why this has happened so please post tank size, a list of occupants and test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and hardness.
