Sick Khuli Loach?

My large kuhli loach that we bought last week from the pet store is suddenly acting very odd. He is laying on his side on the bottom of the tank, breathing heavily, as well as, flipping around oddly and swimming strangely. He's got mostly nice color, but has a couple of white blotches on his skin with no pigment. Doesn't look like ick though. Our other three khuli loaches seem to be perfectly normal but he doesn't look so hot at all. We did a partial water change and had our water tested at the LPS. It had a tiny bit of nitrates and nitrites but other than that, it was clean. The guy at the store said that it wasn't enough nitrates or nitrites to worry about. Any suggestions??
