Common Placo Help me! Is it swim bladder?
 
I bought my Placo about a week ago and he's been great and healthy up until just an hour or so ago. When he swims, it's very twitchy, and he seems to lack control. I don't know what it is. It came on so suddenly, buy my platys in the tank are as lively as ever. Someone help me? Poor Placo seems distressed!

Ammonia-
Nitrite-
Nitrate-
Temperature-
What size tank?

Also, what do you feed him? This may be part of the problem.
