Dwarf Gourami Fat, Slightly Raised Scales, And Trouble Swimming

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?

Ok, so the other fish are safe correct? No need to use meds or anything?

If it is what it looks like they are safe and is treatment useless.
