| || | Kissing Gourami tankmates
I have a Kissing Gourami in a 55 gallon tank right now. He/she is with some Australian Rainbows and Silver Dollar Fish. He (I'm just going to call it a he) has never caused any harm to those fish. He does sometimes chase them away.
I'm getting side tracked... But anyways I have tons of Sunburst Platies now that are all stuck in a 20 gallon tank. I was wondering if I could put a group of Platies in with the Gourami. There's plenty of places for them to hide, and even more places that the gourami can't reach because of his massive size. He's full grown and some where around the age of 8-10.
I've been doing a ton of research for this and I am getting mixed things. One reputable site is telling me that it will most likely be okay, but another is telling me that he will eat and kill them. I just need someone to tell me what I can do. I know it depends largly on the gender and the attitude of the gourami though.
Sorry if this is in the wrong area. I'm only used to posting in the Betta portion.
