Please read the profiles for fish before you acquire them. [Click shaded names for that profile]

The Bala Shark should go back immediately; they get large, they need a group, and a big tank.

The Blue Gourami could be trouble too.

Common Molly is usually peaceful, but stress can make fish aggressive. What are your water parameters?

She mentioned it's a new tank. What does that tell you? ;)

Im going to go out on a limb and say the mollies are reacting to new tank syndrome... ie, the tank isn't cycled...

HI.

Mollys and gourami don't mix at all, the mollys like to bite the long flowing fins of the gourami.
I had the same problem with Moonlights and pearls that were with mollys.

If you want to have mollys don't keep the gourami,and visa versa.

What tank size are they in?
