tank bullies (gourami and molly)
I have a 10g tank with 2 corys, a female balloon molly, a female dalmation molly, a gold gourami (think it's male), and a male swordtail. It used to be more crowded in there, including a platy and two other balloon mollys, but I've since moved them to their own 10g hoping that would settle things down but it hasn't helped much. My main problem is just the harassing behavior of the gold gourami and often even the female dalmation molly is the bully too. These two are the biggest fish in the tank (both 3 in or slightly more). What could i do to help? I've rearranged the decorations to try and change up territory, it doesn't seem to help. If I added another gourami or fish of equal size, might that help? Orrrr..I'm open to any suggestions...I just want everyone to get along.
