I've noticed that my new Flame Dwarf Gourami is acting somewhat strangely.

Whenever the passes by a plant or a rock, he will flash against it, despite having no visible white spots.
He also occasionally jerks his head in a way that resembles a spasm.

He is currently alone in a 20 gallon tank.

Admittedly the Nitrates are a bit high at 20, but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to do a water change while he is getting used to the tank.

It sounds like his gills are irritated. It could just be an acclimation issue.
