The profiles and what I read said that Gourami's are best kept in a male/female pair. I bought a female initially, (less than one week ago) and she was so shy, decided to get a male. Now I'm starting to see he chases her and she sometimes is hiding. I'm wondering if this would change once they get in a larger tank (43 gal), or if I should consider giving one of them up? They are in a temporary 23 gal tank with 4 loaches.
Any thoughts? Would it be better to just keep one? I'm willing to give it some time if thoughts are this chasing is just a temporary thing.
