Help! New fish on bottom?!

Hey guys I just got added a true perc clownfish yesterday to my tank after cycling for about a month and half with LR. Now he was fine all day yesterday and this morning but I just got back home and hes on the bottom sideways. I added different snail today as well. I have never used tap water, always used RO/DI. Im going to do a water change just in case. My current levels:
Salinity- 1.022
PH= 8.2
Ammonia- 0
Nitrites- 0
Nitrates- 20ppm

Yeah I guess I'll hold out and try to take him back to the LFS maybe they'll give some sort of credit. I was just thinking since clowns have weird personalities he was just acting weird but guess not =/
