sick loach?

i have a submergable filter. im not sure the name/type..but i use it to act as a filter/water pump since it lets out a nice current for loaches to play with. its in the corner of my tank since that corner gets pretty dirty(main filter on other side of the tank) it sticks to the glass with suction cups but they do not stick for too long so it can be moved by fish..my leptobotia guilinensis has been hanging behind it for the past week or so.i figured he just liked having a 'wall' on each side of him to rest easy..but now i see him laying on his side, upside down..i know this is normal for loaches but ive never seen him do this before..he was pretty active before..now he just lays there most of the day. no visible signs of sickness but id just like to ask you all incase anyone might know anything about it.
