Tiger Barb behavior

So ive read alot about how these fish will point thier nose down and flap fins, and i've seen mine do that a few times. However, im starting to worry about one of them. He/she seems to stay in hiding and is not swimming with the others. (I have 5 total) Even when I feed them this one stays in hiding behind the plants. It did come out to eat when i put some frozen brine shrimp in there but didnt take much. Colors looks good, its just under an inch long. I know most people dont agree with a fish-in cycle but thats what im doing and keeping a close eye on water stats. Today there were...
Ph 7.8
Ammo about 0.1
Nitrite about 0.1
Nitrate about 4.0
Temp 78
Did a 50% water change

All the others are doing just fine, very colorful, active, and schooling together. Any reason this one might be trying to hide all the time?
