groumis can be, but not always, mean and pick at other fish if left alone. If you have two they can and will probably pick at each other. You should, in most cases, keep 3+ of them. I've generally kept 3-6 when I had them. Any less they pick and nip. which holds true apparently to the research I completed about 5 years ago.

In a previous post I cautioned against this. Unless you can be certain of getting a pair (male/female) you will likely have trouble and a dead fish. Same holds for the gourami. Please read the info in the fish profiles, all these issues are explained and it will save you grief later.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
