Fire mouth cichlid

hello everyone I’m very concerned for my juvenile firemouth cichlid. He seems to not be swimming around and breathing extremely heavy along with not eating much. I’m pretty sure he has some sort of swim bladder issue and am going to try to treat that, but any other ideas as to what it could be? He’s quite a bit smaller than the rest of the cichlids we have in our tank but there are a lot of hides for him and he seemed like he was doing great up until a day or two ago when we noticed he wouldn’t come out of his hide for food and now he seems like he just hangs around the floor. I was told to treat him with Epsom salt but just wanted to double check. We’re checking water now
