Pitus acting weird?

Hello All,

I have an established tank and recently one of my pictus catfish has taken to either swimming in place or just laying against the corner of my tank. He still seems to swim around at night (he's not in his corner when I turn the lights on in the morning). But pretty much anytime during the day this is where he is at. This has been going on for ~ a month. (prior to this he always hid in the day in one of the decorations. )

I normally would think of this as a stress response but I don't know what could be stressing him out. All the levels are steady, and prior to this I haven't made any changes to the tank (no new decorations or fish). And as far as i can tell he looks healthy. Has anyone seen this behavior in a pictus before?

Thanks for the help!
