Re: black phantom food
Varying the food menu is important. Worth a try all the same to make them eat the flakes. Mine eat almost everything I can provide them.

They should not harm the shrimps. Fin nipping is normal and will always be. All social hierarchies among fish have pecking order.
I want to know if they will harm my shrimps and weather or not fin nipping between the three is normal? I heard that in small groups they will do that and in larger groups they will stop but will adding more over crowd my tank?
| You have to provide more hiding places. For gouramis, plenty of floating plants is very important. The larger gourami has established territory and any new fish will always be regarded as intruders.
how do you stop fish of the same kind from harassing each other, since i first got a large gold gourami and i thought it felt lonely so i got another smaller one. the large one picked on the little one and i beleived it was just the size diffrence so i put it the large one into the small tank.
As to the reverse, it is because you remove the larger gourami hence allowing time for the smaller one to establish territories for itself instead.
