Will dwarf gouramis get along with my blue gourami? Cuz I had orginally bought two of them and had to take one back cuz they kept chasing each other. What are yellow panchax killfish? And any specific cichlid that you could suggest? Thanks.
Gouramis are in the same family as Bettas and are rated as semi-aggressive. This would mean that you would use them in a community aquarium with caution. Most of the really peaceful fish that I know of are shoaling fish that travel in schools and there is probably a reason for this. Safety in numbers against those very more aggressive fish that do have the abiliy to live a thrive in pairs.
I spent some time looking in my books but the only ones I thought of seem to reach 4" or so.
Right you are Vin. The reason for 1 male and 2 females is so the male won't pick on the females all the time. As far as fry are concerned the GouramI will keep them eaten so you won't have an over population problem.
