Blue gold fish ill

I noticed the last couple of days my blue gold fish (not sure the official name) has been a bit slow and while cleaning the tank it stayed on its side for ages. It's clearly not well. What's the best thing to do ? Shall I remove it from the tank so it doesn't make the others ill ? I have a tropical warm tank with 6 different types of gold fish. Any help would be great Have attached a pic of when it was well.

Well first off, that is a platy, not a goldfish... How big is your tank? Are your other fish platies or goldfish? What are the parameters?
