Just wondering if the fry are just exploring or if theres a problem

Today the 5 day old fry decided to all gather at the top corner of the tank and stick their heads out of the water. Im wondering if they are looking for air or something. The tank does not have an air stone and the small aqua clear filter agitates the surface slightly

are they just exploring?

What's your water quality like?

Well, I've got 42 demasoni fry and they all generally stay in the lower half of the tank. Fish at the top with their mouths to the surface (or sticking their heads out) suggest to me that they are not getting enough oxygen. Or maybe there is something they are afraid of towards the bottom of the tank? Do they have the tank all to themselves? Maybe someone else has an idea...
