Help...my loach is sick!!!

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I brought a weather loach a few days ago, and he seems to be portraying some very strange behavior, and I need some help in identifying if this is standard behavior (he's my first loach!!)
He sits at the bottom of the tank, not moving for ages....then he floats to the surface, (sometimes upside down!!) and becomes entangled in the weed.....and then just when we give up all hope for him, and are about to fish him out, he gets a sudden spurt of life and sinks to the bottom again. Saying that I'm watching him now and he's swimming around like a nutter!!! If anyone can help.....please.....i don't want my loach to be ill.

Thanks :)
