Pleco problem

I have a 12" long Common Pleco that stopped eating since 3-4 weeks ago.Usually it was hiding behind decorations, but recently just rests all the time in the front corner, sometimes going up for air.The water quality is perfect,no tankmates bother the fish,no sign of illness,nothing.In the neighbor tank I have an other Pleco.I bought them together 2yrs. ago and separated about a year ago.The other fish looks very happy.Plays and eats a lot.Exactly the opposite.It might have gill disease? Fishes stop eating if they get it and is hard to see the gills.I think I'll give an other week and I might take the fish out for a close inspection.Any suggestions please?!
