Question Glass Catfish with curved spine

I recently bought 5 glass catfish and 4 are doing well, but one has a curved spine. 30 gallon tank with 15 tetras and 2 plecos

Water parameters:
temp:79
ammonia: 0
nitrites: 0
nitrates: 10
pH: 7.4

When I bought them they were all straight, but one is now in the shape of an "s". It can still swim, but is mostly lethargic and leaning on something.

I decided to euthanize the fish, he looked like he was really struggling. I have read about tuberculosis and that's what i'm guessing it is now. His coloration was completely normal, but when i woke up he was in the shape of an S. I really hope someone can shed some light on this. They're my favorite fish in the tank.

Thanks!
