Urgent help needed!

I seem to be having some problems in my tank. I have lost 5 polka dotted loach to body rot within the last month which I have treated. The last one died yesterday, the only thing different was that it had a red spot at the end of it's body.
Today I am really worried as my polkadot loach is acting very strange. It's got a red dot at the end of it's body, and been constantly rubbing up and down the tank all day. I have even found it twice completely out of the water. What's happening and what should I do? Have done all the normal checks on ph and nitrate etc. All other fish in the tank are fine. Please help!
