Nitrates are fine  it possible it's swim into something in the tank and stunned it's self or it could be swim bladder from what I have read about yoyo  loach they don't tolerate salt well 1 table spoon for 5 gallons is about the max I would dose with yoyo loach what I would do is Qarantine and fast for a couple of days as swim bladder can be caused by over eating and the stomach putting pressure on the swim bladder or constipation it could also be a bacterial infection of the swim bladder you could try an epsom salt bath 1 table spoon for 5 gallons for no more than 10 minutes as epsom salt acts as a muscle relaxants if he shows any signs of de-stress remove him from the salt bath straight away if theirs no improvement after a couple of days I would do a course of maracyn to cover against bacterial infection of the swim bladder

There is something wrong with the fish but i cannot tell you what. Espon salt is unlikely to help here. I can't even speculate what is specifically wrong with the provided information. Also yoyo must be kept in a group of 5+ and they can get fairly large so need to be in a large tank - I would think given their activity level a min. of 4 foot tank for a group of 5+. Using the cory next to it as a size marker your fish is quite young that is about the most i can say. I will note that yoyo are very sensitive to unclean water or poorly oxygenated water. In my limited experience far more so than clown and zebra loaches. Anyway good luck.
