Tiger Barb in Love With the Heater?

Ok, so I know it's not love, but why woud my Tiger Barb suddenly be hanging out with the heater nonstop? Since last night everytime I look at the tank, it's just hanging out by the heater. The other Barbs are off playing / chasing each other, but this one just sits there. Is it possible it's sick? I've added no new fish for a very long time (probably about a year or so). I haven't tested my parameters since this Monday, but they were fine at the time.
  • Ammonia = 0
  • Nitrites = 0
  • Nitrates = 20-40 (can't make out the color difference on the chart)
  • Ph = 7.6
  • Heat = 76.9į
I don't see anything changing with the paramters that quickly. Any ideas?

could be sick or being picked on. i would watch it more some times its hard to tell. my first thought when i saw the post was well maybe its a temp problem but since the others seem to be fine can almost rule it out.

Thanks for the input. I actually posted a new thread about this TB in the breeding section because I had reason to believe that she was full of eggs. That certainly appears to be the case from the people who've replied to that thread. You can see that thread here.... Is She Pregnant (Tiger Barb)
