Question Oscar does not eat and breathing heavily :(

Hello everyone,
I need some help. I thought my Oscar was just being tempermental, as usual, however, he/she(?) has stopped eating, is breathing fairly heavily and generally looks inattentive. I'm very worried since he is usually ravenous for food, breathes normally through the gills and is very attentive (especially for food)! Also, I just saw him resting on the gravel, on the ventral/'stomach' side, another thing he usually doesn't do. Please help me!!! Thanks, Rob
