false perc problem?

hey just noticed my false perc breathing with much labor and laying on the bottom of the tank. So i thought maybe something in the tank was array but i tested and ended with the following results.
PH 8.3
nitrate o ppm
ammonia 0 ppm
nitrite 0 ppm
Temp 77F
Salinity 1.021 which is a little low, i usually aim for 1.023

The only newly added items to the tank within the last three months are two Turo snails. The perc is the only fish in my 30 gallon as of right now. So does anyone have any suggestion what i can do before i loose him ? I have another tank i could switch him to, but see no sense switching to add stress since the current tank he is in tested out ok ?

I'm certainly no expert, the only thing is...I've become paranoid of 0 reading nitrate results after finding my test kit was knackered. It's only when I used
different test I found I had a high nitrate problem.
