Re: Dwarf Gourami Fungal Infection?
Sounds like finrot to me rather than fungus. I have always recommended not to get two male gouramis unless the tank has a large surface area. Male gouramis can be rather aggressive against each other.

Your pH: Don't bother with it. 7.5 is not a problem. Neither do you have to use pH adjusting chemicals. They can cause swings once the effects wear off.
Your nitrites is more problematic, not the pH. Using treatments with the nitrites present in the tank can only cause further harm. Why? Nitrites is already stressing to the fish and to add to your woes, some fish will have a difficult time adjusting to the treatments given. Some treatments can be far too strong for most fish.
