I have 2 blue dwarf gouramI in a large tank with various other gouramis. 1 which I think is female swims around normally but the other which I think is male spends it time hiding under some plants and only comes out 20 mins before feeding time. Is this normal?. There is no sign of it building a bubble best in the plants. All water quality tests are good

Hi, so this may not be applicable, but I have a blue Dwarf and a gold, and the first 2 weeks I had them, the gold did nothing but hid in the plants in the corner. I recently started adding plants (water Sprite, Java fern, Java moss, elodea) and ever since he has been put nipping at them, swimming and playing. I don't know if he needed time to acclimate to the tank, or if the plants brought him out, but he's out of hiding. I hope yours does as well!!

No aggresion between them or with any of the other fish in the tank. He has been like this for at least 5 weeks now. The tank is heavily planted but he always goes to the same place. If both fish are males do you think getting a female might help?
