Swimming Vertically?

Hi,
I just got home from a weekend trip to find Poseidon dead and Wonder floating vertically? She was doing perfically fine when I left. I feed 2 pellets twice a day and I change the water 2 twice a week. Any help would do.

Were they together or in different tanks, first off? Did anyone else feed them, cared for them, or possibly sprayed any chemicals into that room?

Can you get a picture of the one who is still alive? Did you get a picture of the other one? Or can you describe what he looked like when you found him? I'm baffled.

You checked that your heater didn't break and overheat the tank right?

More info please: http://www.bettafish.com/forumdisplay.php?f=99 Especially if you have ability to check ammonia and nitrite levels

His appearance doesn't sound different than a fish that passed, unfortunately there were no physical idea as to what happened. A picture and/or video of the other would help
