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

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.
