Why is my healthy goldfish floating at the top of the tank?

I have a black moor goldfish and some times he just floats at the top of the tank (not floating on his belly) almost as if he was playing dead. He does this for a while and then comes back to his senses, it's almost as if he was zoning out. He was floating and I came over and he was kind of like "oh hey"

The tank is 29 gallons and well oxygenated, and the other fish are fine so it isnt a problem with water quality.

    Goldfish do that when they've eaten too much. You should give it upto 15 hours. A lot of people throw away goldfish way too early.
