    I have three shubunkins and I am worried. The two continuously chase the
    other. They seem to target the others' gills. Is this normal and if not
    is there anything that can be done. HELP

    Normal, sounds like you have 1 girl and 2 boys, and the boys are trying to
    get the girl to spawn/lay eggs and fertilize them. You might want to get a
    couple more girls to give that 1 a rest... course in a few weeks your 3
    will have made more if you have enough cover for the fry to grow up.

    I find myself looking and watching for baby fish more than I do looking at
    my adults. I've got these big beautiful fish that swim so gracefully and
    here I am looking for these tiny gray babies, what's with that?! :-/ ~ jan
