They're sparring for dominance. How many barbs do you have?

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Silly me...I just noticed it's in your sig. I was going to suggest getting more as they should be kept in groups of 6 or more but you're 10 gallon tank is already overstocked. The Rosy Barbs can get a pretty good size on them (I've seen them close to 4") and they're active swimmers. A 36" tank length is suggested minimum. The goldfish will also outgrow the 10 gallon. Any plans for a larger tank in your future?

Male rosies live up to their name...rosy. Females are plain gold. Looks like both are girls.

Jean is right. Your tank is overstocked. I wonder which goldfish you have.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
