Can you get a picture. A lot of fish go to the bottom when they are ill, it doesn't really give us much to go on. Sorry.

The first thing I would do is a 40% water change. I assume you've been doing at least 30% every week (if not the answer as to why is probably there).

Tank size, other fish - lots of questions before anyone can give answers.

Actually your fish may not be sick whatsoever! If you just recently placed him in the tank, It could be due to the dramatic change in water pressure from a bag to your tank. Since the pressure changes, the fish needs time to regain strength and become accustomed to the tank so that it can swim at ease. Your fish should be back up and swimming in a matter of no time if its due to the pressure!
