Black Moors behaving oddly. One BM is chasing the other one with his nose touching the rear of the one being chased. Weirdest behavior I have ever seen with these two fish. I have checked the water.

Ammonia 0 ppm
Nitrites 0 ppm
Nitrates 5 ppm
pH 8.2

I thought it might be mating season, but they are a tad frenzy with this behavior. The one chasing is nudging the other one against the glass. Doesn't look violent, exactly, just not an everyday normal behavior for these fish.

It does sound like spawning, goldfish spawning can look rather violent and relentless.
Can you post a side pic of both fish?

Here is another....looks like the 'he' is shoving the 'she' forward from behind.
I forgot how to get the photo on here. But, you probably got the idea, anyway.
