    I just moved four gold barbs to a bigger tank and they are going all crazy on my bleeding hearts!! They have always been great tank mates to everyone. Even bettas. Any thoughts??
    We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.

    IMO I think it is like a show of force to the other fish. Just showing they are boss. If they don't settle down I would remove them if you can.

    I think you could be right. They aren't really doing it now. Boy they are more active in the bigger tank. They never stop. !!!!

    take it back. They are still bothering them a bit. When the bleeding hearts happen to cross paths with them a gold barb will chase them.

    Maybe because it's a bigger tank, they need a bigger school.

    That is extremely odd. Gold Barbs are the most passive Barb along with Cherry Barbs. I would suspect that it is simply a new environment and thus a new territory. I expect it will eventually calm down with no long term problems for your Tetras.

    REally? I wouldn't think they would be aggressive during spawning. You could be right sharon. I was thinking of getting more anyway. They bring so much activity to the tank. They have always been quite nice. Even with bettas. They seem to have calmed down today. I hope it last.

    Yes it dose sound more like a new territory issue.

    IMO I think it will clam down after some time.
