My fish are staying at the top !!!

In my 100 L tank i have 12 fish with 2 airators
I have :
*4 dwarf gouramis
*2 small catfish
* 6 guppies (2 male 4 female and heavily pregnant)
My gourmis and catfish are fine and active and swimm around the whole tank . However my guppies just swim at the top , not gasping for air , but just swimming there . My ammonia levels are a bit high but thats it , the ammonia cant be that bad if my others are ok . I have checked for white spots , cuts and gill problems . They dont have any visible problems but like i said the females are heavily pregnant !!! What do i do !!!

Is it possible Guppies are just top to range middle swimmers? I know my danios are
