Very hard to know what to suggest except keep the water quality as good as you can. Try feeding it a squished, shelled, pea in case it has a blockage.

what food do you feed the plecs ?

the pea idea is a good one.

i personally feed my plecs with algae tabs...also supplemented with cucumber/courgette every couple of weeks.
