I`ve only recently started keeping fish so am very new at it all but would really appreciate some advice please.
I originally started with 2 Golden Gouramis and 2 platys. This morning before I went to get some guppys I noticed that 1 of the Gouramis had started chasing the other around quite aggressively, it then got to the point where the one being chased bagan to hide behind the filter and would only move when chased again. While at the Aquarium this afternoon I bought a small nursery type tank and isolated `the bully` to see if the other Gourami would muster enough courage to come out into the open.
Anyway, as soon as I switched the tank light on a little while ago, the bullied Gourami has come up from the bottom of the tank where it`s been sat for most of the afternoon and is very happy swimming with the platys and guppys now. The `bully` seems to go nuts if the other Gourami swims anywhere near it and after reading bits and pieces on the net I think I`ve got 2 male Gourami which is a bad idea from what I`ve read. I will try and put a couple of pics on and would like to ask ppls advice as to whether they are both male Gouramis and whether I should take 1 back to the Aquarium and see if it`s possible to have a female instead?? The tank I have is a 60 ltr one so I`m hoping it`s not too small.
Thanks very much in advance.
