My Crazy Clown

My Clown Loach gave me a heart attack last night. I know that they have a reputation for lying on their sides and looking like they're dead, however my clowns have never done that.
However, last night I was watching one of them swimming in his usual awkward way, near the top of the tank almost vertical with his tail wiggling away. Then all of a sudden he lurches backwards and drops to the bottom on his back as if he's just been shot!
He lay on the gravel on his side for 5 minutes, not moving apart from his gills. I tapped the glass and he didn't move an inch. I was getting worried as he's never done this before. After 5 minutes he's on the move again, swimming around just as normal....what a crazy fish!
