I have a 29 gallon tank with a dwarf gourami, a Bolivian ram, 7 neon tetras, and 1 endler. The tank has been running for about 3 years, in the past year I had 3 guppies, 3 plays and 2 neons die but I think its due to age not a disease.

Also in the past couple of months, I've noticed my Dwarf Gourami getting fatter but I read it can happen due to eggs and whatnot. Today when I was feeding though I noticed that Its scales were risen a little bit, it was laying on Its side (having trouble moving past the bottom of the tank, and generally not being able to swim correctly) and it was breathing heavy.

I included a couple of pictures, what do you guys think is the problem?
