She (I think) floats upside down like that so scope out the next place to forage. She adjusts her fins to make sure she stays level. I was worried at first, but after close observation it's definitely being done deliberately. If I adjust the fllow of the filters, is messes her float plan up and so she will figure out where the next best place is. Fish is goofy like that.

Here's a regular video I just took.

Pretty cute. The fancy goldfish with pop-eyes or the celestial goldfish with eyes that look up all the time have a hard time seeing the way "normal" fish do. They will swim upside down or on their heads or in whatever position is needed to enable them to see what they want to look at. I would only be concerned with the upside-down swimming if Fish was unable to swim right side up.
