How many males are there? I've heard that if there are a high percentage of males, they are less calm and swim around lots to show off and may fight a little

Hmm, maybe they just need to adapt to their new environment with the guppy. I've also heard that moving ornaments around to re establish teritories.
I'm no expert so hopefully someone else with more info with answer

the guppies teratory is just behind the heater or behind the filter because the zebras were in first so I think i will put them in the big tank today plus the big tank has more guppies, and 2 glofish.

It's perfectly normal. My danios chase my neons, as well as chase each other. The more you have the less they actually chase each other which is sort of weird.

I have 5 zebra Danios who are all 5 years old. I've had them since they were fry and to this day they still are continuously chasing each other around and even other fish. They are really playful I think, its as if they're playing tips all day
