Help with Sheepshead Minnow

I've have a single sheepshead minnow in my 30gal since about september. I caught it wild and I has been doing great, it eats and was swimming around. The only other tank mates it has is a urchin and some snails which were also caught wild. My problem is she (the minnow) just lays under the rock i have and wont move much, it eats and nibbles some algea off the rock, but not much else. What could be wrong? My water quality is almost perfect. Nitrates, Nitrites and Ammonia are down, Water temp is about 20-22 C. I do have some brown algea but I'm not sure it would cause her to jsut lay around. Any suggestions?

If you have any ammonia or nitrites in the tank then you have too much. They need to be at 0. BTW welcome to AA
