Is my danio sick?

I've had a small school of Zebra Danios for some time now. These seem like the toughest fish ever; none of them have ever gotten sick or died. Around chow time, the whole school is at the surface, but usually they chase each other around the aquarium or dart around up top. 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.

Hmm I guess that could be the case. The fish in question is definitely the smallest of the bunch and is chased around more often than he does the chasing. I guess I should just be on the lookout for other problems.
