What happened to my gourami?

Hi I'm new here. I have a freshwater 24gallon tropical tank. I was cleaning the tank this morning vacuuming gravel etc, and one of my flame gouramis made a crazy leap up and back down into the water. I didn't see if he hit anything, but now he is falling over sideways! Every time he tries to swim he goes a little distance then falls right over. Any ideas on what could have happened? :( I doubt there is anything I can do for him, but I wanted to ask in case someone might know something.

sorry to see you're having problems.
can you tell us a little more about your tank please.
what are your water readings. Amonia,nitrate,nitrite.
how long the tank has been running for,who else lives in there,
planted or not,temperature.
sorry to ask questions at a stressfull time,however it can help
sometimes to know these things,we may be able to help him.
