| || | Breeding troubles? Blue gourami
So, I have a male & female blue gourami.
They have always seemed to get a long pretty well and everything.
But, the female gourami is now bullying the male, and she always seems to be her 'dark blue' color, and looks sooo bloated.
But, if the male gets near her, and he turns his 'dark blue' color, she gets angry and attacks him.
She only seems to turn the dark blue around my golden gourami.
Is this normal?
should I be worried?
I was informed she could die if she didn't release her eggs, is this true?
( I have put them both in a breeding tank once, they started this terrible nipping and I couldn't handle the violence)
