'Coughing' weather loach

Hi! I'm just new to this site but it looks great! Loads of info and lovely pics.

I have 5 weather loaches and one of them, Cougar(who I've had for about 4 months), has started to act a bit strangely. He starts off by 'yawning' (which I understand fish do to clear their gills) then that changes so it look like he's coughing or trying to get something out of his mouth whilst doing little jumps at the same time. This can go on for about 30 seconds at a time. He doesn't have anything in his mouth and my water quality's ok. Does anyone have any idea if anything is wrong with him and if so, what and what can I do about it?

Thanks.
