i have recently gotten 5 auratus adults. they are all similar size. i noticed today a larger one chase a smaller one down then mount it. like i said they are similar size but the one chasing is slightly bigger. so the larger one mounted the smaller one. is this breeding behavior or aggression? there was no boxing or noticable fighting. other question...they are all panamanian however they are different morphs. should i be keeping them together?

You shouldn't keep different morphs together unless you plan on not breeding them and throwing out all the eggs. As for your specific question, while I don't have auratus, it's usually not anything to worry about unless it gets serious. In many darts, the female will follow the male around, and sometimes they hop on them. My azureus hop all over each other all the time.
