do you have a bubbler in the tank?  it’s possible there isn’t enough oxygen in the tank itself.

Do you have a filter in your tank? It probably needs cleaning out. Your fish is gasping for air as theres not enough oxygen in the tank. You can add an air stone run by a pump too but make sure your filter is clean.
