The same thing is happening with my fish, Squirt. He was swimming sideways at the top of the tank, he couldnt swim well, he couldn't swim down because he was so floaty, and he was a little bloated. He's a little better now, all i did was try a cooked pea, it worked a little. I cleaned his tank and im fasting him for a few days. It may be a swim bladder problem.

Same thing happened to my Acheron last week and I panicked.
Check his water temperature. That was my problem, water was too colded because I had unplugged the heater so he got all pale and behaved the same as your fish.

Yes, sometimes a water change and better temps is all they need. Sometimes, though, there's nothing much you can do.
