New member in dire need of help...i think.
New member here, just looking for advice to get my tank as good a home for my fish as i can.
Got an 85 litre - 18gallon? tank
3 Tiger Barbs, 2 Albino tiger barbs, 5 danios and 3 Gourami's 2 Opaline 1 Yellow and a plec.
Been having some bullying issues later with the larger opaline gourami pretty much taking over the tank, not good i'm guessing?
Tiger barbs are barely around 1.5inches danios are pretty small, 4 of them only young, ones about 2 inches
I'd say the largest is the Opaline Gourami thats doing the bullying, probably about 3 inches length but he's also quite bulky, about 20 percent bigger than the other gouramis if i were to guess at it Oh other than the plec, who's about 7 inches long i'd reckon.
So yeah basically my large Opaline Gourami has stuck a flag down and claimed about 70 percent of the tank as his and the only thing he can't chase off is the plec who he just ignores. My other Gourami's have almost resorted to hiding in the skull i have on the right hand side of my tank, and all my other fish are gathered around it.
I'm guessing this surely can't be good?
