Am sorry, I don't know anything about fish. You must be so worried. I hope he's ok.

you can get water tested at p@h but you can also buy a tube of strips that you literally dip into the tank to test it yourself which are always useful to have. I would also consider getting an isolation tank/breeding tank (usually a smallish plastic tub that has suckers to sit at the top of your usual tank. Just thinking if it has a disease then at the moment it could pass it to your other fish, also if he is ill and dies while no ones there then the other fish will start to eat it and pick up whatever was wrong (only a possibility not definitely going to happen).

I'm not a fish expert but if he is staying at the bottom of the tank and breathing more than normal then he is really not well
