Fish acting funny
These fish are new to the tank as of Thursday. All except the tetras are acting very strange. They are all scavenging around the tank relentlessly non-stop and going straight to the surface and then diving/falling back down. I'm new to aquariums so I'm not sure if this is normal for fish placed in a new environment.

My readings are: Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, Nitrates 7-8, and pH~7.3

2 Male Dwarf Gourmis
3 Dalmation Mollies
8 Neon Tetras
4 RUmmy Nosed Tetras
4 Glow Light Tetras
6 Coryfish

I know the coryfish are known to go the surface and then dive back down, but I have not heard of the mollies and gourmis doing that. Are they just "following" what the other fish are doing?

I fed them all this morning and then vacced out the remains after about 5 minutes.

Everything is fine, mate. It happens all the time with fish but in time, they will stop it. I noticed they stopped only when they become used to their new environment.:)
