Belly Sliding can be caused by many things. In fry, it's mostly due to the
fact that the fry never completely expanded their swim bladder with air.
However, sometimes it just bad genetics where some fry may have been born
with a deformed swim bladder or some bacterial or viral infection has caused
damage to it.
In adult fish, a swim bladder is succeptable to bacterial infections and may
also just be demonstrating a genetic flaw where it has failed over time. If
you're keeping the tank healthy and fish well fed, it might just be a fight
against genetics and birth defects.
Those are just my opinions though.
