Thoughts on Floppy Tail Syndrome...?

Hey guys,
I've been trying to figure this one out for a while. I've got a couple of cresteds with FTS. This is despite large, well planted tanks and full, varied, properly supplemented diets.
The bottom line is that these individuals will sit upside down, on the glass, no matter how many places there are to hide in or climb on.
I've seen a huge list of possible causes. Now some, like improper diet, deffinately aren't the case here.
What I want to know is, what do you guys think? My guess is weakening of the muscles in that area because of the way they choose to sit.
Any other observations...?
