Clown Loach ?

OK, I took the plunge and bought my first clown loaches. LOVE THEM. Had them 5 days. All doing fine, except one. Poor little thing just swims in place, on his side!!!! I got all my books out, but can't find anything that describes this, except swim bladder. Is this what he has? If so, is there anything I can do to help him? All my water test fine, ammonia-0, nitrite-0, nitrate-5, ph=7 and temp 78 degrees. Can anyone tell me what the problem is?
Thanks, Anna
