dojo loach floating

About a week we brought home a dojo loach for our aquarium. He was doing all the "usual" things, as I read about on your forum, but last night he started with what seems to be a comatose state. He will float upside down, fall to bottom of tank, maybe stay there for 5 minutes or so, then suddenly awaken and start swimming around like a nut again. I also notice that he has reddish-looking areas on the base of his lower fins (pectoral?) which I did not notice in any pictures on this website.

I sure was looking forward to enjoying this guy, but it seems he is "on his way out." Are my observations correct here?
