He just finished breeding with the female & was doing an excellent job of keeping the others away then today I see him wedged between the rocks half on his side. I thought he was dead so I go to take him out & he has a burst of energy & swims around all crazy & half sideways if that makes sense. Then he will go back to the rocks & "play dead". It looks like he has become blind. Any help would be appreciated, I don't know anything about fish!

It's hard to diagnose from pictures, is that the female above the mail in the second picture?  Does she also have a bloated belly.

What are you water parameters?

Have a look at this post, it will give you an idea of the important information to share.
