Emergency!

Hi everyone, been awhile since i posted. Here is the deal, I have a RTC that is acting really weird. I have since moved him to a clean tank. He started acting crazy, swimming in circles and upside down. He rarely before has left the shelter of his boat. Now he stays out and swims upside down and in circles. He does not appear to be eating. I moved him to a backup tank. Any ideas?

What do you mean you moved him to a clean tank? Was it cycled, it could be ammonia issues. Are you aware of how big your fish gets? What size is your tank and what are your water parameters?

My PH is at 7.0, my amonia is good. No i have him in my quarintine tank. I moved him after he started doing the loop-d-loops. He swims in circles, and upside down. his skin looks normal, nothing with his color. He looks perfectly healthy, just he doesnt seem to be able to swim normal. Im worried he may have something wrong with his swim bladder or somthing. He dwells in a 75 gallon tank. Only 5 inches long. I have bigger tank on the way, that is if he makes it. Poor guy. I have had him about a year. He is a Hemibagrus wyckioides (asian Red tail) Cat
