Barb breeding habits?

I have 3 female rosy barbs, and atm 2 of them are acting like I've never seen before: 1 female is hanging out on a fake plant that I have, and rubbing all over the leaves, and taking turns with my other female that is just being chased around the tank by one of the 2 big male barbs, and they chase away the other male barbs that I have. So is the chasing part of the breeding behavior, or is he being a jerk again to other fish? One of the females when I bought her was huge, now she's slimmed down quite a bit. On a side note, none of the fish are bothering my non-barbs, and none are bothering my long finned female barb. Sorry to ramble

It sounds like your barbs have spawned. Barbs are egg scatterers and unless there is a means of protecting the eggs from being eaten, it is unlikely any will survive.
