Possibly sick zebra danio?

I recently purchased a 10 gallon tank, and set it up, a couple days later I bought 3 zebra danios, and one of them seems to isolate itself from the incredibly active other two. He hasnt eaten as far as I've seen, and if the light is off he swims at the very top of the tank. Any suggestions as to what, if anything, is wrong with him?

Was the tank cycled? Can you see any physical symptoms on your danio? How about your water parameters?

Yes, the tank was cycled, and there are no physical symptoms other than the fact that he has kind of an underbite. I also think he is a bit older than the other two. And I havent had the water tested yet, bringing a sample to my lfs tomorrow.

Alright I looked at him again and i think his mouth is deformed. Its not that big of a deal since he was 79 cents and all, but its sad to watch him, even though the danios are only my interim fish for cycling and whatnot.
