HELLO!
I WAS UP AT 3:15 OR 3:30 LAST NIGHT (canít really remember exactly) AND I STARTED TO STARE AT MY FISH TANK BECAUSE I COULDNíT FALL BACK TO SLEEP. I NOTICED THAT SARASA WAS CHASING PUMPKIN EVERYWHERE. LIKE CRAZY AND PUMPKIN DIDNíT WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE OTHER FISH, JUST WANTED TO HAVE A NORMAL NIGHT. SARASA WOULD CHASE PUMPKIN AROUND, AND HERE AND THERE PUMPKIN WOULD FINIALLY PULL FAST ONE HERE AND THERE ON SARASA, AND WOULD LOSE WOULD LOSE SARASA FOR MOMENT AND THEN HAPPY KISSES WOULD SEE PUMPKIN, AND THAN HAPPY KISSES WOULD GO AFTER PUMPKIN, WELL AS FAST AS HAPPY KISSES CAN SWIM THAT IS. WHEN THEY (Sarasa and Happy Kisses) GOT PUMPKIN TIRED ENOUGH THAT THE POOR FISH HAD TO STOP AND TAKE A BREAK SARASA WOULD COME UP AND STAY RIGHT BESIDE HIM OR HER, THAN WOULD FACE PUMPKIN AND THAN GO BESIDE PUMPKIN HEAD BY TAIL. THAN WOULD TURN BACK AROUND AND GO RIGHT BESIDE PUMPKIN AGAIN. HEAD BY HEAD. WHEN HAPPY KISSES FINIALLY FOUND THEM S/HE WOULD GO UP AND ITHER GO IN BETWEEN THEM OR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF P. AND START VIBRATING, OR TRYING TO PICK AT THE BUT BEFORE P. SWAM AWAY. THIS WAS AN ON-GOING PROCESS WITH S. HK. AND P. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEYíRE DOING AND THEY KEEP DOING THIS OFF AND ON TODAY. I DONíT KNOW?? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?
THE THING THAT IíM NOT UNDERSTANDING IS WHEN THEY WAS IN THE 10 GAL. P, WOULD GO AFTER S, AND HK.???
THANK YOU
BECKY HERMAN.

That was slightly confusing...but to me it sounds like that Pumpkin is a female and the fish are chasing her because she could have eggs in her...or they could be just choosing to pick on him/her now. I know once and awhile my fish would pretty much pick a fish to chase and play with and then would do it for a long time and then the next day would pick another fish to bother.

Pumpkin, and Sarasa sound like both females, and Happy Kisses sounds like he might be the male of the bunch. Don't know for sure, maybe someone else can help ya..as long as they aren't hurting Pumpkin, I wouldn't worry about it.

I am sorry but that huge font is very hard on the eyes and I cannot honestly read it without my eyes hurting...

Sounds like breeding behavior to me.

Ditto to all above. Suspiciously, sounds like either territory defining or spawning behavior.
