If you find that all the tank mates are behaving and you do not see any visiible damage on your BGK then you might want to do a little more research into the typical behavior (remember ever fish is different and an individual) This is what I have found out about the BGK breed, first they are shy, two they are nocturnal.
One "They are Shy"
Supply multiple hiding spots around your tank for the BGK, once they are out (usually at night when the light in the aquarium is off) surveying their new home, they will find the hiding spots. During the day, hopefully, you will see them shooting to and from the multple hiding spots.
Two "They are Nocturnal"
Since they are nocturnal thus sensitive to light, use a moon light or lunar light. This light will not offend the BGK or your other fish so you can see your BGK actually swimming in all the weird ways they do so well. I do not think it would be a good idea to use the lunar/moon light all the time, just an hour or so prior to the time you would usually turn off the aquarium lights. However the moon/lunar light can be left on over night with no ill effect on your fish or plants.
Hope this info helps you to understand your BGK a bit better, they are really the neatest fish.
