My tiger barbs do this, too, but I think it's just part of "who they are". Mine aren't sick. I don't know if it's part of showing aggression / dominance or what, but seems to be normal for them.

How does the tank test for ammonia and nitrites?
Are their any physical signs of disease, such as white spots?
