So I've just moved my 5 wcmm over from their 5 Gallon tank to a 12.5 gallon tank and they seem to love it.

I'm wondering if the way they began swimming a few minutes ago is any concern?
They swim into the side facing upwards a couple of times, then swim around the tank, then go back to doing that. Very confusing.

This is known as "glass surfing" and is usually a sign of stress. If this is a cycled tank, it might be that they're just getting used to being in there (a lot of my new fish have done this for a week or so after being added). Your 0 nitrates suggest that you might not have pre-cycled this tank and that can also be a source of stress.
