what is this black phantom tetra behaviour

so ,

ive got a tank that has 5 neon tetras, golden chinese alage eater and a pleco.

I thought id get some new additions and decided on 6 black phantom tetras.

Theyve been in the tank a few days now, and ive noticed that 3 of them are fanning out their fins...

anyone know what this means in the world of tetra?
