are my new fish ok?

I got new fish today and they are in a quarantine tank. usually when i get fish they're more active then these. i have 6 rummy nose tetras and 2 make guppies. they are all just laying at the bottom and treading water. is there something wrong? i have furan-2, general cure, and salt in the tank. it's 8 gallons. the tetras aren't even schooling together. should i be worried?

Lol it happens, especially in a new enviroment. I'd suggest putting some fake plants in there to give them some cover, they don't need to be in substrate, just let them float around, but most fish are stressed out by having nothing to hide in.
