unactive clown

Hello everyone,
One quick question. I have two clown loaches (3in, 1.5 in) in a 30-gallon tank with three bala sharks (4 in, 2.5 in, 2 in). I recently added a third clown (3in) directly from the dealer's tank (no isolation). At first, he/she packed up with the other two. However after two days it became much less active. I have not noticed any strange spots and it seems to be eating food that falls near by. Its gills seem to be more bronze then the other clowns. Do you think there is something wrong? If so, could you provide any advice?

Thanks in advanced.
