Euch, I'm not sure, but that's really not a healthy looking WCMM. Is the tank/fish under treatment already for anything?

No .. out of the group they sold me this one never ate anything and isolated... the other ones seem fine.but of course I'm worried it might be contagious...

if you only got the fish recently, take it back and swap it for another one.

the picture is blury. take some more and check them on your computer. Make sure they are in focus and post them.

If other fish are looking unwell, do a 75% water change and gravel clean the substrate every day until the problem is identified.
make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it's added to the tank.
