I'm New to fishkeeping, I've had other aquatics before, but never fish.
This is my first fish tank, and my Guppy is behaving wierd...

So this morning when I fed my fish I noticed that Uno, my red tuxedo guppy was not eating. He was swimming up and down one wall, like he was trying to escape. He didn't even notice the food... he Did come and peck at it once but then went straight back to the wall. Is this normal?
The tank is a 25L quarantine tank with a few plants.
Ammonia is at 0
Nitrite is at 0
Temp is 25 degrees Celcius
It has been cyclying for 6 weeks
It has one Guppy and two cories who seem healthy. Also lots of pest snails that came with the plants.
The fish have been in there for a week and they seemed fine until today.
My main tank is about 40l and has plants, 5 Kuhli loaches, 2 male guppies, 1 female betta and platy fry (their mother was pregnant when I got her but she died of swim bladder disease. They have plenty of floating plants to hide in.)
That tank is Also cycled so ammonia is at 0.
It has been running for a month.
I feed all my fish flakes from my local store and the occasional bloodworms Once a day. The fry get crushed flake.
Uno was always hungry until today! What's wrong?

Nitrate level is 20 ppm
I haven't tested the pH.
The filter is an Aquael Versamax Mini External filter.
And No, he can't see the other guppies.
I Did feed him a few minutes ago and he Did eat, but he is still behaving the same way - swimming frantically up and down one wall.
