Sick Cardinal...swimming vertical

I have about 22ish cardinal tetras, and have had them along time actually, all in good health exc. one. he's swimming near vertical, stomach empty and occ. rests for a sec on a plant leaf. No trauma nor spots or evidence of disease. Only thing new is me setting up planted tank w/ co2 and adding no3/po4/k/and trace.

Any clues??

Thanks!
Chris

What's your pH and hardness at?

Maybe it's just old?

kh is 8 and ph is 7.1-2 He's actually one of the smallest ones I have...so maybe he just wasnt very healthy comp. to the rest of the gang.

(Just want to know?: Is Aquarisol safe to use in Ich treatment w/ plants in the tank as well? )
