Is this shrimp acting weird?

fishietank

My orange Cherry shrimp has been acting weird today it seems. It’s been grazing but then randomly it appears to just start swimming erratically. It seems to just start swimming upwards and then come back down vertically nose-down and then hit its face slightly on the substrate and then fall back onto its feet. It then starts to graze some more. It also has been swimming a little bit on its side and it's been spending more time at the top water surface.

It also seems to be swimming more than usual but the other shrimp in the tank look like they’re doing fine.


I checked all the water parameters today. I also did a 15% water change today and the last time I did one, I believe, was on Thursday

Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 10
KH & GH - 7
