Got new Striatas, few questions.

Hi,
Just got three striatas. They were reclusive while the light was on, but as long as I stay quiet they'd swim around. Now that it is night, they are trying to get into my filter. My Yo-yo's and skunks never did this.

I have a diverter so that the filter output goes sideways, and they keep swimming up and laying in it. I blocked the opening above the filter with a sponge, so they can't jump out, but is this normal?. Why do they want to swim upstream?

While I'm asking questions they are chewing on the tank glass, as if there is food there. They look a lot like plecos as they do it. Is that one normal too?
