Aggression with Golden White Clouds?
 
Upgraded to my new larger tank, hooray!

Today I added more Golden White Clouds (and a few others) for a total of 5 of them. 2 of them are displaying constantly, and doing what I would call fighting after their fancy display dance. My knowledge of fish-fighting is limited, or I should say non-existent!

The weird thing is I'm pretty sure it's part of my original 2. I think the are both male.

What the heck is going on and am I headed for a casualty here?

hmm im pretty sure this is ordinary during breeding season or because they are minnows, but good job on picking out the fish i told you about :)

IMO let them do the dance thingy but if anyone gets injured start to get involved a bit

Females are often plumper. Susan, I'd place the white clouds in a tank by themselves instead of mixing with other fish. These fish are very easy to breed and will often not bother their eggs if well-fed. Expect to see fry in a few days and the females get plump again and again.:)
