Hi does anyone know what maybe wrong with this guy? Has started swimming head down in the corner of the tank with a long translucent thread protruding from the anus. Rights himself and swims normally / actively with the other two during feeding. Appetite fine. No changes to anything at all parameter wise. All other fish and corals healthy. Not being bullied.

belly looks sunken as well. Have you got a tank you can move him to?

I would move him to a QT and treat him with a decent wormer product e.g. something with praziquantel,  flubendazole or fenbendazole in it.

for example https://www.ntlabs.co.uk/browse-products/indoor/marine/anti-fluke-wormer/

Swim bladder issues can be caused by all kinds of issues, from parasites, to infections, to water changes. Often fix themselves in time. Weird!
