Weird cherry barb

So after my water change in sitting here watching my fish when I see one of my cherry barbs using one of my plants sorta like a "slide" going on and off of it with his big belly. He's been doing it a lot and every time I try to video he stops.

Is this normal? I'm only asking cuz it's so out of character for mine. They usually keep to themselves.

I am not sure what that it is. Some fish play in bubble walls or the like, it could be that. Or, he could be "scratching." I really don't know. Try to get a video if you can!

The other 4 barbs are fine. Same with the rest of the fish. I had just finished a 50% PWC
