Whats wrong with my Yo-Yo Loach?

I purchased a Yo-Yo Loach about 2 months ago and until recently he's been in view and active at all times of day. Now he's been hiding and lying quiet, not even coming out at feeding time. Occasionally he swims about and briefly searches for food , but sometimes experiences quite violent twitches which are short lived.

The tank is about 32 litres with a water temperature of 26C. The other fish seem happy and I feed them on flake food, but occasionally bloodworms or fish treats as substitutes. The Loach looks fine physically apart from possibly a slightly large stomach.

I would very much appreciate any help anyone could give me.
