Gourami Care
 
I have six gouramis, 2 kissing gouramis, 3 cobalt blue dwarf gouramis, 1 flame red gourami. I am planning on getting more, but I was wondering whether there are species of gouramis that cant mix, the dwarfs fight a lot but they arent very vicious.

Gouramis dont really tend to get along at all. There are few that should be kept together. If your gourami are still young they may not be comfortable making a move, as the mature I would expect something to strike and then all hell will break loose.

Agree. I just posted in your other thread on the kissing gourami, referring you to the profiles, they will explain things. Feel free to ask any questions from that.

They may be females. It is the male gourami that is territorial and can be aggressive to other male gourami, and sometimes to females.

No they are males, they are all males, not sure about the kissing though

What is the tank size? We've already determined the Kissing is trouble waiting to happen, in that other thread, and I believe you are getting rid of them which is good.

yea, I will surely miss them but i will have to do some measurements.
