Pencilfish chasing other fish
I have 5 Golden Pencilfish and recently ive noticed one will chase the others around, but not just the other Pencilfish, he also chases my Neons and my Pentazona Barbs. Any ideas why he would be doing this? I thought these we're peaceful community fish?

They are but males can be territorial especialy with each other. Usualy no damage is done, they just chase the fish out of what they percieve as their territory.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
