After realizing that 10g tanks were just not cutting my desire for a aquarium experience (i have 3 haha) I decided to finally get a 29g (which im sure will lead to the purchase of a 55g in a year and so on..)
Now, I put some fish I already had in there, because they were too big/out of place in my other 10gs. Currently in the 29g I have a gold gourami (think it's male..), a female dalmation molly, and a male swordtail. I want everyone to be happy and get along and thus far, I've observed the gourami bullying the swordtail at feeding time, and just chasing him when bored I guess. Soo here's my questions:
1) Would getting more gourami help with the bullying? Or would they all gang up on my already exhausted swordtail?
2) If I got more swordtails (I've heard to get 2-3 females per male to avoid the male bullying one female to death or to avoid two males hating each other) do they have to be the same coloration?
Mine's a pineapple swordtail, but I'd love to get a few red velvets or marigold.
3) Same question as above but for the molly. She's pretty big as far as mollies go, 3 inches maybe a tad more, but could I get a lyretail or other variation and expect them to get along?
4) Another other suggestions for friendly fish I could add? I'd love to add kuhli loaches at some point, I think they are just too fun when they're active...
