Why are my guppies swimming so rapidly

I have a 25l tank and only just got the fish yesterday - 4 male guppies and 4 neon tetras heated and filtered. I am just wondering why my male guppies are all darting around the tank up and downwards. I have experience with other fish because I also have a 60l tank also. Please help...

Also another thing is my neon tetras aren’t coming up to eat I feed the fish tropical flakes and they just stay where they are? Do I need to get dinking pellets?

Why are my guppies swimming so rapidly

My 6 neon tetras never come up to the top in my planted community tank. They hang down on the bottom or about 6 inches up. There’s no bullying what so ever in the entire tank so they are not scared. Get sinking micro pellets and they will love them down there. I grind up some of the flakes on occasion into small pieces and they find those down there as well

Do you have any idea why the guppies are swimming so fast up and down?
