Ranchu hanging out at the top of the tank

Hello all,

One of my ranchu has started hanging out in the top corner of the tank and skipped breakfast this morning. The parameters are 0 ammonia 0 nitrites and 60 nitrates. This is very unlike her, she's usually always in the middle of the water column swimming around happily. What are your experiences with fish doing this?

Thank you!
