Fish gasping

My fish are gasping. My ammonia is 0 and is fully cycled. I don't know what's going on. What do I do. I just got back from a weeks vacation.

Nitrites are 0. I did move my tank last week and did a 80 percent Pwc then. No co2. Really not sure what's wrong.

I'd do another WC just for good measure, something could've gotten into the tank.

I just did a 25 per pwc. no difference yet. I am verry baffled. My tetras seem fine its just my guppies and a cory or 2. but dont corys breathe air from the surface, although they are up there quite a while. idk whats going on with the guppies.

not enough oxygen?

airstones and power filters help agitate the water at the surface, and increase gas exchange.
