I think Cathie's suggestion of a tank pic would be helpful. Also, the water is a bit on the soft side for a JD so that may need looking at in the long term.
As he's new to the tank, that may well be having an effect. JD's are quite shy fish (despite their aggression when mature), and finding himself alone with a lot of space may be freaking him out. Are there any other fish in there with him, or is it just the plec?
I see no result for ammonia? Are you using test strips? If so, a decent liquid based test kit would be a wise investment as the strips are not very accurate and may be hiding an underlying issue.
