I hear this is normal and happens from time to time.

It may be in the process of splitting.

Normal behavior. A lot of theories why they do it but nothing to worry about.

One of the trains people believe they do that is because they're "hungry". Just give him some food and he may go back. Not positive but I've read this somewhere. Nothing to worry about though.

Bubble tips are very finicky and no one really knows for sure how or why they do/dont bubble up. Some are bubbled up for months but then never again. Some are always bubbled up. It just depends on the nem. Even 2 nems from the same mother in the same tank can produce totally different bubbling behavior.

Just keep everything in check and stable and you have nothing to worry about.
