Bala Shark swimming sideways/upside down? Please Help...

My bala shark, (2 inches) is now swimming sideways and upside down, i did a half water change and he seemed to be getting better but now he's back to swimming wrong again. Please help.

Edit: He does have small white spots all over him, so I went to store and bought it cure, I've added that but it wouldn't have him swimming upside down would it?

Edit: He is currently in a 10 gallon fish tank but we are working on getting him into our 55 gallon.

White spots would be ick. Does he look like he's swimming upsidown to rub against things? Sometimes fish will "flash" against things to scratch themselves. What are your water parameters?

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
