Exclamation Vertical

Hey all
I have a problem with my crowntail female Marilyn,
she, for the past 2-3 weeks whenever she rests, she is vertical to the
top of the tank. She swims fine other wise....I've tried AQ salt when I do her regular water change (which is once a week). I have been feeding her flakes one shake twice a day....... Like normal and she is not that old.... she is under a year... Any suggestions on how to help her?

To me, it don't sound like anything is wrong, I have seen both my fishy's do this, especially when there is music being played in the house, they actually "bob' to it in a vertical position..but if you never saw this type of behaviour before, and if there are other things, lack of energy, and not eating, I would say there is something going on, if not, and if your fishy is eating normally, and swimming actively..I wouldn't worry..if you can add a pic..that would help.

That's very good to hear that nothing appears wrong with her! But just for good measure I will upload a picture of her as soon as I can. Thanks for helping me out here! =)

O.K. the bad news is that I cant get a picture of her.... Im out of town and i did not have the time to get one of her... But I change the water in her tank regularly.... I feed her flakes only.. I cant get her to swallow even the micro pellets.... Which I think is part of the problem... So she might be slightly bloated as well.... But if I am looking at her in her tank her tail is facing the bottom and her face is vertical to the surface.... She also swims with her tail tilting up... If it is bloat when I get home how should I treat it?
