Another bala shark question

I know bala's are jumpers when they are nervous and they move quickly as well. My question is, lately at night I can hear them splashing (jumping out of the water), thankfully I have a full hood but if they are jumping around and I've read they do that when nervous or scared or stressed...Are they stressed or nervous or what not? all my levels are perfect, or is it when the lights are out they decide to play? ha

I dont know.
My balas go in to sleep mode at night. They still swim around, but very slow. Think they also find comfort in each other. My 3 tinfoil barbs and 3 balas form a pretty tight school at night.
