Drooping Kenya Tree

My Kenya Tree has been "droopy" the last 3 or 4 days. It's my understanding that it usually "drops" a branch when splitting. Could it be that this could be the case. I've had this guy well over a year and this is the first time I've seen it do this. Everyone else in the tank seems to be happy (see photos) and my water is testing fine.

My Kenya tree has been doing the same thing. Ive had mine for over a year also and it acts like its struggling to stand up sometimes. Mine mostly does it when the lights are first cut on. Does yours do this all day or does it eventually stand all of the way up.

Also is it in a strong current?

They are also a bit finicky about salinity.
