is it normal for gibbs to be...

all of a sudden like sprinting, jumping, bolting really fast all around his tank sometimes?

he doesn't do it all the time but I catch him a good bit doing it.

Is it normal? and if so, could it be because he has 5 gallons to swim in instead of that little stupid cup?

A little more info. is needed. How long has he been in the 5g? Does he appear to be rubbing on things (flashing)? How long have you had him? Have you tested your water for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates? If the tank is new, did you cycle it before adding him or are you doing a fish IN cycle?
