Frequency of male goldfish chasing females


Recommended Posts

My tank hasĀ  1 female, 3 males, and every 3-4 weeks they'll spend a few days where they just chase her frequently, and squeeze into anywhere she's trying to rest.

I've read online that this should only happen once a year, but if you slowly raise the temperature in the tank over a few days you can artificially trigger this behaviour.

I'm not controlling the temperature other than what nature is doing here on the Gold Coast, is there something I can do to stop it occuring so frequently?

One of my males hurt his eye, I'm guessing from trying to squeeze into her hiding spaces.

Thank you
