I would guess that some aspect of your water quality is poor. The best way to
deal with this is to change water, change water, change water, frequently and
massively. The first changes should be gradual so as not to osmotic shock the
fish. If you have a TDS or conductivity meter, try not to lower the TDS or
conductivity more than 30% each change. Once you have got the water down to
the tap water specs, you can do 90% water changes every week. The fish will
love it. Make sure you dechlorinate.
