Neon Tetras

I have 8 black neon tetras and just in the last day and a half they have exhibited strange behavior. They usually swim in open areas of the tank but are going in and out of plants currently. They are swimming in schools in and out of the plants up and down and some even look aggressive at one another.

I recently also introduced male cherry shrimp that i got from shalu to my existing females shrimp and the females are pregnant now and i am wondering maybe the tetras' commotion is over newly hatched cherry shrimp...

Maybe the aggressivness is them begining to mate.
Maybe they saw the shrimp having fun and wanted to join in
