so i have a male and a female in my tank; the female is all over the tank, where the guy is scared of her, and kinda hangs back, and is very frightened when around her. she even chases or tries to scare him sometimes. why is this happening? i caught her swimming back and forth in the back of the tank today too. any idea what is going on here?

thanks!

How big is your tank? One big cause of aggression is not enough space, in all species not just goldfish. The more dominant one will attempt to push out the less dominant one in order to gain a larger share of the resources, but this usually only happens when there's not enough for them both.
