not eating and not moving much

We have had our fish for a few months. Everything was fine until a week ago. We were away for a few days but had people come over to feed the fish. When we came back home, I saw there were lots of fish food on the surface of the water. The fish just stopped eating. It also stays still at the bottom of the tank or on the surface a lot. It is not dead, but surely looks like dead.

He's probably just way too overfed, and with all that food in the tank, the water probably needs a huge waterchange.

Do a 100% (if your tank is unfiltered), or a 50-75% (if it is filtered). Do not try to feed him for a day or two, if he doesn't look fat.
If he looks kinda fat, he probably did eat way too much. Fast him for about three days (I did this with Jade after he ate too much of an algae wafer).
