Re: Is my danio sick?

However, the smallest guy has been hanging out in one spot, at the top in a bunch of hornwort, for the past few days. There are no visible signs of illness but he always faces the same direction and tries to stay in one place. He still eats regularly and will swim around a bit if one of the other Danios bugs him, but otherwise he's pretty much motionless. Anyone else ever seen this behavior? Should I be worried?
This is what happened to one of my Danios. I think it was because he was being bullied so much by the others. He usually just stayed in one spot unless I fed them or he was being chased.
