That is common behaviour and will work itself out it is stressfull as the fish being chased get very little rest and it can wear them out,to death as you have seen. When you say fancy,do you mean long taial sarassa comets like the red and white ones? I don't see any fancy tail goldys in that vid and whatever you do don't add any. They cannot competed with commons and comets. What you are seeing is males chasing around the fems and it does settle down after a few months. You are not overstocked and you do not need water changes,get mcrobelift spring summer pond cleaner packs and use them as directed. Do you have a biofilter you runt the water through,if not you need about 5 gallons worth.
Plz do not be tempted to stock koi,they get far too large for that size pond.
