heavy breathing

My dogface puffer and my grouper are acting like they are breathing heavy,gasping for air.They stay in one spot.Sometimes the puffer will swim around but goes right back to the same spot.Did a water change ,no difference.Any sugestions.Also,I had a shark egg go bad and thats when this started.Its a 110 gal tank and I did a 15 gal water change.Should I have done more?

I would set up and do a bit of a larger H20 change along the lines of 50% also add some activated carbon and change daily for a while (week or 2) It sounds like the egg fouled the water up .
How long was the egg in and deteriorating before you relized it ?

Yes do try and get a large water change done . Then monitor and continue with every 3-4 days of 20% or so water changes for them that should help /
