Firefish breathing rapidly!! help

One of my two firefish started breathing very rapidly today and it's really worrying me :/. The water quality seems to be fine. Salinity, pH, and temperature are all good. There's no visible signs of ick or any other kind of disease on him. Anyone know what might be the problem? My other firefish, that I also believe might be pregnant, would be lost without this one :/ they do everything together. Please help...

not so good...
I just changed about 30% of the water and they seem to be doing a little better. The other firefish also started breathing a little heavier this morning and was swimming around the top of the tank for a while. The first one didn't eat this morning either. All the signs of ammonia poisoning.
Is there anything else I can besides changing the water gradually each day?

Look around the tank that you dont have anything dead that is adding to the ammonia.
