Female chasing male guppy??

Hello, my female guppy is chasing the male and nipping at his tail. Why is she doing this?? Could she do any real damage to him?

How many guppies do you have? Guppies like to be in groups of four or more anything less than that could mean bullying. You should also have around 3 females for each male. Otherwise the males will fight.

45 gallon aggressive
65 gallon planted community
15 gallon goldfish tank
15 gallon livebearer tank
45 gallon black ghost knife dwarf gourami
20 gallon community
2.5 gallon skirt tetra
2.5 gallon guppy fry growout
2.5 gallon female dragonscale betta
2.5 gallon male betta
