Unhappy What is wrong with my guppy?

My yellow Guppy Kiiro seems to be very weak, he spends a lot of time sitting at the bottom of the tank. He is eating normally and apart from being very weak I can't see anything else wrong with him. I have tested the water for ammonia and nitrate and the reading is zero. Its not old age because he has grown since we got him about a month ago. I'm going to quarantine him, do you think this is the right thing to do?
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated because I'm really puzzled by this.

I've attached a video.

I think this may be caused by vitamin deficiency. I am no expert so you should listen to other people too.

Thanks for your replies. What is a good diet for a guppy? We feed them on King British complete tropical fish flakes. Is there any brand you would recommend? Would pellets be better than flakes?

Thanks in advance.
