As for aggression, it is more likely just the fish. The species as a whole exhibits normal gourami behaviour, and that means the males will
be territorial and thus somewhat aggressive to other males, sometimes to females, sometimes to other fish they take a dislike too for some reason.
Those darn males.
Lucky I got a female, I guess. She is a doll and makes me appreciate the species all the more. Might not feel the same if the only one I have had was aggressive like my Gold one was. I just like everyone to get along.
