Albino Cory Cat - stuck

hey all - Iím new here, and new to fishkeeping.

I have small school of albino corycats, and one kept getting stuck everywhere. I thought I had made it impossible, but today he wedged himself upside-down between a tree and the glass. I got him free, and now he canít right himself. Heís breathing, and resting. When he tries to swim he gets very stressed and gives up.

I have a feeling he might not make it tonight, but if anyone has advice for getting him right side up again, Iím all ears.

Water parameters are good (0,0,5). Cycled. Other fish all seem fine.

Photo of the poor lil dude attached.

It's possible a swim bladder issue. You can Google it. The getting "stuck " issue was prob him trying to hide from predation, as fish will nip at the weak, sick or dying. If I remember correctly, it's a bacterial issue that causes swim bladder problems
