Fish Starring at the wall ?

I just got my first 29gal a couple days ago now from my sister. She didnt want it anymore, so I took it. It came with 4 painted Tetra? I think...
and the filter/whole setup.

I kept the gravel, and filter and pad from the tank from before while it was established. I put down Flourite Black after rinsing it out throughly, and put the gravel over top of it. Filled the tank up with room temp water, and added "Stress Coat +" and waited about a half hour before I let the fish out of the floating bag into the tank.
They have been doing good, tank is at 76* and filter and bubbles running strong! Today I bought 2 Opaline Gourami a tad bigger than the Tetra because I was told they were Hardy fish that could help the tank start.. They get along fine, and they stay together. I think I have a Male and Female Gourami. They like to play tag, and mess about.

The thing is they all like to sit in the corner of the tank at the top and stare at my wall for long periods of time. Its pretty funny, but i wanna see some movement. haha

What are they doing ? Also the Gourami have no problem going to the bottom of the tank either.. Is the current in my tank too Strong for the fish ?
