Kissing gouramis can get quite aggresive as they mature, they also get fairly large. If you have more then one in the tank you may have a pair of them. Virtually all fish will become very aggresive when spawning.

I agree with ladayen. How big is your tank? What other fish do you have in it?

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Agree, this is an aggressive fish. You can read a bit more in the profile, click on the shaded name Kissing Gourami.

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