    hard to see in the pics, is the mouth hanging open a bit??

    that's his siphonoglyph ( may have more than one ), they are used to control water flow through the pharynx for respiration.

    thats why I asked about your water params. if it is only once in a while, there probably isn't anything to worry about but he should be keeping his mouth closed.
