Breeding behavior? Look for some white little dots on the gill covers of the fish that chases Smiley
Otherwise, the tank may be too small, and the fish are getting territorial and hostile towards each other. How big is the tank? (As in, how much water does it hold?)

Yeah, and how many fish, exactly do you have in the tank? Smiley
But I agree with Nossie, in that it probably is breeding behavior. Wink

Not necessarily, it could be a 75 gallon or even a 90 gallon.  4 ft.  Doesn't tell us really anything, but I suspect your tank is overcrowded.

If you times height by width by length and then divide by 1000 you can work out how many litres it is. Then do an online conversion from litres to gallons if that is what you work in Smiley

It's most likely too small, you'd need a 130 gallon tank to accomodate all those fish.
