Danio with a heavy tail?

So my pearl danio has had some wierd behavior recently and I was just wondering if it's something I should be worried about, I seem to be asking that question alot recently, like a mother who's baby sneezes I guess. But anyways, what I'm seeing is that when she stops swimming her butt end kind of sinks. The best way I can describe is that it seems like someone tied a weight to her tail. She swims again and goes level then the next time she stops for a second she starts to tilt back, almost like she's doing a wheelie. There's no side to side tilting or anything like that and she still eats and swims around just as active as ever. Has anyone seen anything like this?
