Currently I have 6 Diamond Scale angle..
I bought them all at around the same size and at the same time
but theres 1 particular 1 which doesnt eat much..
always picking on the left over and while others are around 2inch its still at 1inch
its being veri gentle and always get bullied.. although no physical damages on it.. it doesnt have territorial fights..
always poking at the gravels..
and sometime hide behind the rock..

is there any problem with it?

it may just be a shy fish cause fish have personalities aswell but other than that it may be a runt of the fry so thats about all i can think of.

It sounds like the runt, and you will probably lose it if the bullying continues. Since it is swimming funny, you should put it in a hospital tank if you can. The stress of constant aggression toward it will eventually take its toll. I had the same situation with my angels. :-[
