Sick Weather loach-help needed

My very old weather loach has suddenly got sick. He only lays on his back or side, panting. He will wiggle if I touch him or dart to surface and 'burp'. There are no other visible signs on him.
I have done a 25% water change with "sera aqutan' water treatment (2 hours ago)and taken his castle and plant etc out, cleaned his filter and increased the air in his pump.
After this I've noticed tiny white 'insects'on the inside of the glass. they are 1-2mm long and seem to crawl like centipedes. Is this why he's sick?
Please can anybody out there help?
