How is the other fish (Wonder) doing?

How long did you have both of them?

Since both fish were affected, but they're in different tanks, maybe it could be:
a) Water related. Did you do a water change on both tanks at the same time? Maybe something was in the water?
or
b) Contagious. Could one have been exposed to something, and the other picked it up via cross-contamination?
or
c) Environmental. Could something in the room have affected them?

Wonder is the fish swimming vertically. It can't be water related, can't be contagious or environmental.

Could be contagious if there was a toxin, or even parasite exposed to them. But I'm just baffled.

They had NO contact at all as they where on different shelves located across the room from each other.

Did you add anything new to their tanks recently? Decorations, plants, gravel, etc.

Or did you use anything new when you did a water change? Etc....

This could be a long shot, but maybe an internal bacterial infection?

Internal bacterial infections, internal parasites and constipation cause SBD, and I am almost sure that virtical floating is a sign of SBD (I do believe Callistra told me this but I could be wrong). Bacterial infections can also kill very rapidly and are spread very easily. I mean very. Siphons that are used in the tanks, turkey bastors that have been shared between tanks, nets, test tubes, even if you put the clean water in the same bucket and use a thermometer to test the temp from one of the tanks would infect the bucket and could spread it to both tanks. Handling one tank and then the other and possibly getting a water droplet from the tank hood on your hand and then doing something with the other tank... There are endless things that can cross-contaminate tanks.
