My gourami immediately chased the molly all around and it sought refuge behind the filter. Then it started to bother the catfish. It never left them alone. It even nipped the Molly's tail fin and took a chunk out. I had to move them out of the tank into another one. What would be a good fish to put with my gourami. I know not another male and I don't really want a female either as I would have to keep taking her out after they bred. Suggestions anyone?
Welcome to the forum
A blue gourami could be one of a couple species of fish - a dwarf gourami and a 3 spot gourami. Both come in a blue color morph. The dwarf gourami could be kept in a 10 gallon tank, though it's really a bit small. However, a 3 spot gourami is not appropriate for a 10 gallon.
Do you know which species you have?
