Gouramis?

So i have 3, 2 gold and 1 blue, my blue is full grown, but my golds are only 3 inches tops


the 2 golds were swimming in tight circles like my danios do when the spawn


Are they spawnning? Are they even old enough?

Agree. That could be a male/female pair, or it might be two males challenging. Close observation of how they interact would tell you which it is.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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

I know 1 is for sure a female, the other one is slightly larger than her, and i could be wron but his dorsal fin doesn't look as rounded, my big blue one got jelous of the 2 "spawning" (thats what it looked like, it was the same as when my danios spawn) so she decided to take charge and keep the 2 young ones seperated by keeping them on different ends of the tank, so i move the 2 lovers tomy new 20 gallon with my skirts
