Yo Yo Question

I have 2 yoyo's. I can't tell them apart, but have seen at least one of them rub its side against the bottom or a rock and the turn its belly up. I think I have read that this is called flashing or something like that. I have seen them or at least one doing this for over 2 weeks. I can't see any visible signs of problems on the fish. It doesn't do it all of the time. The fish are eating, water param are good. They are in a 55 gal with 3 clowns, 6 cory cats, and 3 tetras. Temp 80F. Is this just something yoyo's do? Or should I be concerned. I just netted the yoyo I had seen do it, and looked at him with a flashlight, he looks ok to me.

Thanks,
Linda
