How long has your tank been running?
Did you aclamate the fox before adding it to your tank?
What colour is it showing currently?

They tend to swim at an angle sometimes (head up) espesially when in a new environment.

Switch off the lights for the day. They stress easy in a new environment. Also please don't add more fish as your tank is still fairly new. Fox face's should be added ideally to a more mature tank as they are good algae grazers.

Looks a bit skinny, feed him some greens, Nori, Spiralina flake or some Spiralina pellets (Hikari ones are good).

Also check your Nitrite - your tank is only 6 weeks old. If you get a reading your tank has not properly cycled. In the event of a reading add some special Blend or something similar and or a 25% water change.
