Panda Cory - laying upside down and on side, seems weak

Hello..
OK, I have 4 Panda cories in my 33 gallon. The ammonia and nitrites are 0, nitrates less than 5. Temp is about 78, pH is 7.2.
Tank is planted and understocked (6 swords, 2 Ottos, 6 Cories).

One of my Panda cories is acting strange, but not in a Cory normal way!
It is kind of floating in a way, I noticed it 'stuck' upside down in soem anacharis, I wiggled ithe plant and ite swam off...to lay on the bottom of the tank and keep floating onto its side. It keeps doing the same beahvior....water current seems to push it around, so he kida floats or is upside down....and will randomly swim to another location in the tank.

Any ideas? It looks ok as far as outward appearence.

Christina

There may be a problem with a swim bladder disorder. I would QT the cory right away and try looking through these sites for more information:

I'm sorry to hear that. Keep an eye on the other fish in the tank and use those links I gave you if anything shows up.
