Clown loach swimming in circles. Swim bladder?

GrandmasterNads

Hi everyone

Hoping you can help. I got clown loach as an addition to my tank last week and the others are fine but this one is swimming super weird. It has been for 2 or so days and keeps getting itself caught in the plants in the aquarium (not sure if it’s through choice because it always gets out) but it’s just swimming around the tank doing 360° spins. I do weekly water changes and checked the levels of everything, seems fine and all the others are swimming about fine too. Not sure if it could be swim bladder.

Anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Worried it’ll affect the others somehow.

TIA!

Does he swim like that non-stop all day and night?

Is he doing barrel rolls? Or is he swimming in controlled circles?

Does he stop to rest?

Does he eat?

Is he still alive?
