Rainbow Fish Behaving Strange

Hi !

I have purchased 6 rainbow fishes 6 days ago. Two Boesman's, two New Guinea, and two Red. A few days ago I noticed that a few of them, were behaving in a funny way. ie. going underneath the filter box, and doing a kind of "dance" with each other. Since then, two of them are not eating much and seem to stay on the same spot. Also coming to the surface of the water quite often. All the others seem fine. I have never had this type of tropical fish and I am not sure if this is normal. My water temperature is 26 degrees, nil nitrite and about 20 nitrate. My last water change of 40% was seven days ago.

Any help, advise, website relevant to them will be EXTREMELY apprecia
