Swimbladder? Molly tank.

20 gall. Two sailfin mollies. Two balloon mollies. The one wth issue is the female sailfin. She sits on the bottom of tank and doesn't seem to move unless feeding. Is she doing this for swim bladder? I don't have the current parameters as I have to get another kit. All other fish and two month old fry are perfectly fine... So what could she be doing? Why?? How can I help?

My male sailfin Molly acted the say way (only moving for feeding the last couple days) except he stayed at the top. Unfortunatley he passed away today due to a mystery death. All levels were good and I had just done a 25% wc. He was a georgeous fish and I loved him! I hope yours makes it!Click image for larger version
