Swim Bladder problem?

yeaterday i was looking at my fish and noticed one of my female swordtails was vertical. she has been like that for 24 hours or so but seems happy enough. ammonia is at 0 (using liquid test) as for the nitrates and nitrites, i havent got them as i still need to get the money for the test. how is swim bladder diseased caused and how is it treated (of there is any)?
Oh another quick question, my cory had some body rot (which is quickley clearing up) could this be from the swordtails picking at him (seen one female recently doing this quite a bit)?

You should be able to take your water to your fish store and get them to test it for your for free in the meantime. As for the cory, yes, it could definitely be due to bullying. You should make sure you have lots of hiding places for him.

thanks okiemavis :D yea there is alot of place for the cory to hide but hopefully he will be able to cope if not ill think about getting something else for him to hide in and change the tank a bit.

About the swordtail, she was swimming perfectly today then she started the vertical swimming then suddenly come right and swim around normally for a few minutes then she is vertical again!?
