The fish have been in the tank 3 days now and they are also the first fish to live in this tank. The ammonia is neutral, the PH is neutral, and the water temp is good. All the fish are doing great except for 1 clown loach. He/she is always getting into a corner than laying on it's side. It'll lay there for hours and you'll swear it's dead, but one little poke and it'll start swimming around like nothing is wrong.

I've got a problem with one of my clown loaches and I have no idea what is wrong.
For the last week almost i've noticed that one of the loaches has been constantly breathing rapidly with its mouth open.
He/She is also behaving strangly. All my loaches are usually hide inside a big hollow rock during the day but this one no longer seems to care for hiding and just sits outside the tank now. And before they usually dive for cover when they see activity outside the tank but this one again doesnt really seem phased at all. Other than that though he seems fine. Swims normally and physically looks fine (pic attached).
Also i dont know if this is of any relevance, but he does appear to be the smallest of the 6 but only slightly and his stripes are alot darker than his tank mates.
2.5ft 40 gallon which has been setup for about 5 weeks now.
Canister filter 1000Litre/hour flow rate (and cycled for 5 weeks + i've added cycling bacteria at the start)
water temp is around 78F
25% water change every week and filter cleaned every 3-4weeks
Nothing has been changed in the tank recently
Nitrite - No test kit
PH - No test kit
TankMates - 2 white clouds and 3 guppies and 20ish 3week old guppy fry
Aerator rated for 100gallon tank
Thanks for any help, really appreciate it.
