I agree. I looked to 3 different sources to find out if Gourami would be alright with Tiger Barbs and all agreed that yes, they would. So far, the Barbs are not the issue, they chase each other but for the most part leave the others alone. Big Bertha, the Gold Gourami seems to be the issue. She chases them on occasion, and they might turn around and chase her back for a foot or so then give up. She however or he, what ever the case may be, chases everyone.
I fear that i have purchased a play ground bully type of fish. I am hopeful that as the plants grow up, they can feel more secure in the tank. I hate that the learning process is so often at the expense of the fish. I was so happy and proud that I made it through the cycle process without a loss of fish life and now, I find I have a different problem. This is exactly what I wanted to avoid in owning fish.
