goldfish on bottom

ph-7.5 ammonia-<0.3mg/l, kh-2, gh-7, nitrites <0.3mg/l i came across someone with a 10g with 1 molly, 1 pleco, 2 goldfish. he found homes for the molly and pleco. we did water changes and vacuumed gravel daily for a week, and changed filter. they were healthy for a week. now one is laying on bottom. he gets up and swims once in a while, he eats, it just looks like hes sleeping. has anyone seen this? thanks for any help. also temp is 75, tank had been in sun with light algae now moved out of sun.

Ammonia and nitrite are too high, a bigger tank or water changes daily are your only option.
