Last Dwarf Gourami Question, I promise
So again, I am fluctuating between gourami species. I know dwarfs are more territorial than pearls or honeys, but they're so beautiful.
Would a mix of dwarfs like 2 females to one male work in a 40g tank? Thanks!
If you can find dwarf gourami females, you can certainly give it a try. Problem is that they are extremely rare finds, so there isn't a lot of information about keeping them together. Females are not nearly as pretty as the males are. I followed one persons account a couple years ago, who kept a pair in a 40 gallon. The male killed the female.
Well, there goes that idea...I'm pretty sure I'm either going with a neon DG or a power blue DG and about 30 cardinals... yay
Thanks for all the help! (I will likely need more)
I had a male and a female together in my 10g at one point and he chased her until she got stuck to the filter intake and died. I did successfully keep three males in a 50 gallon community once. I added them one at a time with a couple weeks between and there was minimal fighting and no injuries. They picked out their territories and left each other alone.
Interesting, thanks! I'll probably not take the risk and go with one DG. (or pearls)
I've never kept the bigger guys. The more I read the more I think I got lucky somehow lol
Good luck to you with whatever you choose :D
