Exclamation Guppy vertical swim problems

I have a female guppy that seems to have an issue. She swims fine, however when she stops swimming and goes to just hang out in a part of the tank her tail sinks and her head rises so she is hanging out vertically. I thought that it may be swim bladder disease, but she has no issues swimming and is not flipping over or struggling. She is in a 55 gallon tank with other guppies, platys, mollies, cories, tetras, and a BN pleco. It is a moderately planted tank that has been setup going on 2 years ammonia and nitrites are at 0, nitrates are between 10-20, and pH is around 7.4. The rest of the fish are doing fine and not having any problems. Anyone have any ideas on what the issue is?
