Symptoms and Treatment

When did you start noticing the symptoms? *just now!!
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? *he's been having 100% WC every day
Does your fish have any history of being ill? * no, never!
How old is your fish (approximately)? *I have no clue - I've had him for about 3 months... so maybe 9 months?
SOOOOO - he is normally very active and silly, but I just noticed him acting odd. He is hanging around the top of his tank, kind of 'pointing' towards the ceiling... I'm so worried!!! I did his WC and everything is perfect as far as water chemistry... could it be he is old? I mean, I got him from Petco in July this yr. Could it be something unfixable?? I need help!!! AHHHG
Thanks in advance <3
