Question swim bladder disorder?

so i have a 20 gallon tank freshwater tank with 6 pearl danios, 2 cory's, and a red tailed shark. Today i noticed that one of my pearls is swimming kinda on a slant, and when he swims fast he kinda turns horizontal. He seems fine and hes swimming like he normally does except for the fact that he is on a slant. i think he might have swim bladder disorder, but im not sure. What do you guys think? Any help is much appreciated!

I really don't know why, but sometimes my tetra swim on a slant. Always been a wonder to me, but they seem healthy, and I have had them for a long time.

(Corydoras need a group of no less than 3, but preferably 5 or more. Petstores never stress the importance of schooling.)
