Fish do all different kinds of things. He`s not doing anything strange IMO. Those fish do better in schools. At least three.

I have three Chromis in a 75. After lights out around 11:00, he swims back and forth across the tank for literally hours. Exercising??

Sounds more like it is scared/stressed for what ever reason, if at a frantic pace? Many fish do not like complete darkness, perhaps that is the problem?
