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!

What size tank?

I have not lost my mind! I just can't find it
5 gallon (Baby Guppies) 25 or more baby guppies
10 gallon (Guppy Galore) 1 male and 2 female guppies

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