That's helpful, thanks.
On the basis of what you've described, I think it might be helpful for him to be fed something other than flakes. This might be helpful https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/ ... esheet.php?caresheetID=81, and other caresheets advise live/frozen foods like bloodworm and daphnia, along with sinking dried foods such as sinking pellets, and even fruit & veg. Sometimes the dried food, especially flake food, can swell up inside the fish, pressing on its swimbladder / buoyancy aid which would account for him going upside down; an adaptation to his diet as described might just be all that's required.
Let us know how he gets on with this, or whether we need to help further.
