Sick Guppy!

Hi there!
My guppy has been doing this for 8 days now. I have placed it in a separate tank, added aquarium salt, and medicated it with Tetra Lifegaurd for 5 days. Anyone know what could be causing this? Any other suggestions? No improvement noted in the 8 days. No other fish from the tank seem to be sick.


Thank you!

1~What type of fish is afflicted? Guppy: Bending motion
2~What are your tank parameters: ammonia-0, nitrites-0, nitrates-20, temp-78F, pH-8.2
3~ How large is the tank? How long has the tank been set up? 20 gal, 6 months
4~What type of filtration are you using? TopFin 20 and sponge filter
5~How many fish are in the tank? Guppies-4, Molly-2, mystery snail-2, ghost shrimp-4, cory cats-4
6~When is the last time you did a water change and vacuum the gravel? How often do you do this? How much water do you remove at a time? Weekly/25% water change/vacuum, or when nitrates are above 40.
7~How long have you had the fish? If the fish is new, how did you acclimate it/them? 1 month-bag acclimations
8~Have you added anything new to the tank--decor, new dechlorinator, new substrate, etc.? nothing new added
9~What kind of food have you been feeding your fish, have you changed their diet recently? flakes-nothing new.
