question about zebra danios

hi there, i have a group of 5 in the 75 gallon (it's woefully understocked after the loss of about 10 other fish) and now they have changed in appearance and behaviour..

two of the danios are being bullies!! they have changed from gold finned to completely gold bodies and now they are chasing one poor danio all about. (standard blue/ white)

i have just added 2 from quarantine, but they are chasing the odd man out from the original group of 3. can i do anything about it? i really don't want to lose a fish or have the poor thing tortured to death... should i wait and see if it's just new group dynamic, or do something now?

They're just establishing the order of the tank. They're pretty active and like to play around a lot. It can sometimes look like they're bullying eachother but they're just playing.
