Cherry Barb swimming herky jerky

I know most Cherry barbs swim a litlle herky jerky, but one of my Cherry Barbs swims very spastically
It is almost like he is struggling and labouring

However, when it is feeding time, he swims very fast and eats normally
He also swims around and chases around with the other barbs

It is only when he is alone he seems to spastically swim around

All other fish in the tanlk are fine. All the water parameters are within normal ranges, and there are no visible signs of illness or sickness

It truely has me baffled

he must be humming a tune he heard on the tv and dancing to it.i'm just joking if there is no sign of stress or sickness i wouldn't worry.he is eating fine and he sounds active around the other fishes.
