first, never good to house a new animal with established animals, as always possible to introduce disease or parasites. Second, bearded dragons always do better when housed alone. Some breeding groups do work but for the most part, only adults should be housed in breeding groups.

Stress from cage mates could be causing issue with your dragon as large or more dominate animals take all the best basking spots, food etc and intimidate the submissive ones till the point they just don't thrive. I suggest housing the new dragon at least, alone. Give a good detail of your setup as well, this way we can see if the problem also lies with husbandry.
