Clown Loach

We purchased 6 clown loaches this weekend. They are a little over 1" long. We have them in a 5 gal quaratine tank with a sponge filter. Water temp 73F. Nitrites and ammonia are 0. We are doing 20% daily water changes. This afternoon one of them is lying on its side at the bottom. It attempts to swim but just keeps falling over. We are feeding shrimp pellets. Any advice or help would be GREATLY appreciated. This is our first attempt at loaches.

Thanks,
Linda
