Oto and Gourami together question
I have a male, Blue Gourami that I've had no luck keeping other fish with. He really needs to be by himself, but I put 3 Oto cats in with him awhile back to take care of algae with my live plants.
I notice that when they do swim around the tank, he often does "harass" them by chasing them. He hasn't ever injured one, but I'm noticing they spend most of their time hidden under the log in the tank. I'm not sure if this is normal?
So, I'm thinking I should move them to my other larger tank, but I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts? Perhaps these guys aren't bothered by being chased, or maybe they are? I hate to loose them in the tank because they have kept the algae off the plants, but my other tank could use them too, so either way it would be okay.
Any thoughts? This smaller tank is a 23 gal, planted tank.
