Blob silver dollar!!

My dollar has been weird since I don't know when..
I never seen him eat and his foods always had leftovers
But now his body is fat and his eyes!
His eyes are a bit 'inflated' than normal dollars have..

Oh and he has been floated upside down when there was a power cut.
It is horrible and so my sis have a 'first aid' which is additional oxygen bubble
And he's back to normal again..
Oh I really don't have any idea what's going on!

The tank is not very big, and inside it there are only this dollar, a chinese algae eater, and an ancristus golden.
The two never bully my dollar
And I don't have any plants in this tank, because my dad hate it if he keep on eating the plants (this dollar used to be in a big tank with lotsa plants, but it's already very long time ago)

I'll answer my best if there are anything that I haven't tell you, but please help my poor dollar!
Thank you very much!

What are your tank's water parameters and what is your normal water maintenance routine? Water changes, amount of water changed each time, etc??

No I haven't checked the temp but usually it's around 28(coldest) to 32(hottest)
As for the rest parameters I don't have the tools to check them..

Can you answer the question about your tank maintenance habits? Swollen eyes (pop eye) alot of the time can be due to the water not being pristine. How often are you doing water changes? Also, you say the tank is small. What size is this tank??

@ Red: SDs are shoaling fish and are recommened to be in a group size of six.

Oh yes I forgot
I don't change it quite often because I was busy recently...
So that's the problem....
I don't remember the real exact size, but it's about 20x30x30..
