    What causes them to spawn? It seems one of my bows is frequently sporting the gold spawning stripe. Are there conditions that I am setting that encourage this, or does it just happen? Is it indicative of the fish being "happy", or the tank conditions being good? It's interesting to watch, but I don't want to wear the guy out.

    Sounds like a happy fish in a happy tank that will wear himself out.

    Those are the males warning bars to keep others away from their spawning site. As they mature, those stripes will get green, bright orange and red and change periodically. Very awesome to watch.
