Don't feed him, he just has bloat. It'll go away eventually. One more thing, some fish just don't spawn. It takes a lot of failed attempts to get these fish to breed. Super clean water, super good food=super breeding. The more you worry about it the less likely they'll spawn.
Try getting a large plastic tub filled with 3 inches of water and thickly planted with live plants, Indian Almond Leaf and then introduce the pair. I did this and they lived together for a while and then bada bing!!!! A spawn.
