Hey everyone

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?

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.

Bah sorry bit scattered right now haha been a long day.

Tiger barbs are barely around 1.5inches danios are pretty small, 4 of them only young, ones about 2 inches

Hope this image works, it's poor anyway

Ok image failed, theres a medium sized skull to the right of the tank, a group of plants in the centre and then another small ornament front left.
