What's wrong with my little Betta Elphie?!

My poor girl :(
She's in a tank with two other females, they got along.
She's also with two aquatic frogs, two cory's and two ghost shrimp.
She's had a pretty bloated belly for a few days and today I caught her on the floor, resting I guess. Now I walk over and shes swimming vigorously at the waterline, upside down! She hasn't eaten. I'm so worried. I'm ashamed to say I have to go to work now and don't know what to do.
Temp has been hovering around 81 the last few days, I cant get it down yet.
Also, I just took out some, what smelled like, rotted plants from the tank.
Doesn't seem to have effected anyone else.
But then again she's bloated and lethargic.
:(

Definatly get her in to a clean, bare quarantine tank ASAP. It sounds to me like pretty severe swims bladder disorder, a non fatal condition in its self but it all depends on the actual cause. The most common is constipation. I would suggest fasting her for three days and monitoring her poop (colour, size, if she does) while keeping her water pristine. 81 is perfect. Pictures would help lots!
