Help w/ Blue gourami please!!!
I have a blue and gold gourmai(one of each) i've noticed that my blue has become somewhat territorial and has started fin nipping at the gold one. i'm worried that he might try it on some of my other fish but as of now i haven't seen him go after any, just the gold guy. i've heard that blues are more aggressive than any others.
would it be best to add another gourmai or two? or should i just return him and replace him?
Re: Help w/ Blue gourami please!!!
If I were you, return the BGK, hillies and dragon gobies especially the blue and gold gouramis. You can keep the rest however with no issues.
i know about all the fish in my tank thank you, i know what is and isn't brackish but they all are doing just fine.
i think you rely too much on hearsay rather than what works. i will not be returing any fish other than the blue gourami and possibly the gold one. and i will be replacing them most likley with bolivian rams or kight gobies.
i do have plans for a bigger tank in the future, a 150 gallon when the fish get a little bigger. so there is no need for concern for me or my fish. the only concern i have is that you get your facts straight before you go telling people what to do with their entire tanks. you obiously don't know much and shouldn't be giving such strong suggestions.
lupin knows his fish, cool your jets some.
in my experience the blues have so far been the least aggressive towards my community tank inhabitants. In your position I might return the gold gourami so that he might get a fighting chance back at the LFS. my two blues in my 110g stay at the surface and never bother anyone, though they occasionally and harmlessly chase each other from time to time.
im just saying what I would do. god forbid I give you advice that you would find overbearing and uninformed.
Why ask for help when after you got your answer you decided to pretty much verbally abuse him? If you even bothered to check the past advice he's given you'd know it was sound advice. He gave good honest advice, as opposed to what was probably the petstore owner's advice (lemme guess, you got em at Petco or Petsmart).
Look back on this when they start killing each other.
whoa why do u have to go attack lupin like that she has never given wrong advice and she is right hat thank is over crowed and you really need to remove bothb
How about you minimize your rude remarks towards other members? They are simply here to help you, not criticize you in any way. I have not criticized you once at all.
This topic is closed until the issue is resolved. I see no reason for it to continue if you are not willing to listen to anybody else, least even avoiding the criticisms. If you have any questions, please PM me.
