The banging its head might have nothing to do with the fact that it's swimming upside down. It could just be sick. In any case, I don't think there is really anything that you can do except wait and see what happens.

Agree. Whenever I have a fish that begins to swim eratically, it always dies eventually. Sometimes it is best to remove it and euthanize it.

And welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.
