Blue gourami lying at bottom of tank+ not moving!

I have a blue gourami in a twenty gallon along with some tetras and they all get along. I came to feed the fish and he was swimming erratically before finally landing undrneath a large leaf and just staying there sitting on the gravel.The only way I know he's alive is when I poke the net in the tank and he twicthes his whiskers. He is an old gourami, belinged to someone before me.. I think he's around 4 years old or so. But everything was perfectly fine till today.. I don't know if it's happened just now or if he was freaking out all day and I didn't see. The tank is also extremely well established,but I'll check the ammonia parameters now. Gaahhh,I llost his female partner a few months ago,I don't wanna have it happen again! of help...
