Exclamation Help! Please! Please!

My Red Wag Platy is acting different! I just got him on the 23rd and now he is sick. Yesterday he wasn't using one of his fins and now he is just staying at the bottom of the tank. He is my smallest platy and the others picked on him a little but I'm not sure if they physically attacked him or not. My betta is very protective over him now because it is hard for him to swim! What should I do? What do you think is wrong. All my other fish are fine so it can't be fungus or a parasite or something like that. Maybe it's a sore. Maybe he's a she and is pregnant because there are bubble nests in my aquarium! But I'm really worried! Please help! He's not moving! He's just laying on the bottom of my tank lifeless! He's is still breathing though! Some one please help! PLEASE

Move him to a separate tank and use some Stress Coat.

Do you have clove oil and/or vodka? Then you can humanly euthanize him.

I'm sorry for your loss... It doesn't sound like you could do a lot.

Just for future reference, euthanizing fish with vodka is very cruel and no longer suggested. Clove oil, however, is humane.
