Welcome to fishlore!

How big is the tank?
What is the full stocking?
How long have you had them?
What is the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

They are schooling fish so should be kept in groups of 6+, 2 is not enough, if something is wrong this will add to their stress.

Does he seem to struggle getting to the top of the tank or struggle getting to the top of the tank?
Does he seem bloated at all?
What foods are you feeding him?

No, he's swimming between mid to bottom of the tank and is able to swim to the top and bottom if there is food. Occasionally he will follow the other silver dollar.
No, he doesn't seem to be bloated.
Mostly pellets and frozen bloodworms
