Strange Behaviour?

Hi all,

I'd like to ask some advice on some strange behaviour one of my Clown Loaches has been displaying to see if any of you have seen it before.
I've got 4 Clowns in a 120L tank. Two have been in there since late January and another two in mid February.
They were all getting along fine until about two days ago, when I noticed that the biggest one (Frank) was sitting on his own in another part of the tank. They usually all stay together in the shaded corner of the tank so it was strange.

He moves fine, there are no marks on him, no changes to the tank in anyway at all, he eats fine and goes back to the pack at night.

Does anyone have any idea what could be bothering him? Any advice is much appreciated as I love em all so much!

Thanks from a clown lover!
