Hello. 2 days ago I could not see my yoyo loach in the tank. This is not unusual as he often rumages for food around the back and behind caves. Yesterday I noticed he was breathing very rapidly and his underside is swollen he is also lacking the energy to rest upright instead he rests on his side or his back. I have moved him into a quarentine tank so that the other fish don't bother him. He is still bad, laying on his back or side breathing very rapidly. What can do?

My water parameters are normal. Ammonia o, Nitrate 0, pH 7.5. Please help.

All help will be very much appreciated.

What's your Nitrite level? It's more important than the nitrate. Also if you're able post a picture of the yoyo loach.
