So the fish floats to surface unless constantly swimming down?

Any sign of bloating or been knocked / hit side of tank? Looks like some sort of swim bladder issue.

All I can think of is trying her in a very shallow filled spare container for several days. The idea is to reduce water pressure as much as possible.

Or an Epsom salt dip.

Sometimes they come right on their own.

Has she done this before? Or is it something completely new. Some of my neons do that just to do it but I don't think anything is wrong with them. But there very well could be and I suggest to look up a few things about possible diseases.

Trapped air from floating food?

If it's exclusively at eating time.

(Feed slow sinking pellet and/or bloodworm, or push the flake into the water body so they don't eat from the surface)

Second easiest thing to check, water hardness and adverse effects of continued hyper osmoregulation. (Neons being a softer water species)

Then explore disease........both parasitic and bacterial "disease" can affect swim bladder function.

I have a tetra that is like that after eating, after some time it gets back to normal. It only happens after feeding.
