Gave up on Pearl

    I finally decided to rehome my PG. Ever since I added him to my tank with platies, cories, and harlequins, he's been traumatizing all of them. I've lost a total of six rasboras, a platy, and a cory. I thought it might be some disease, but they died one by one. Since PG is gone community is schooling again and tank seems much happier. I will update if I'm wrong but I just wanted to shout out to others that think all PG's are peaceful.

    How was he traumatizing them?

    If fish don't school, it usually means they're comfortable. They often school when something makes them anxious.

    How big was your tank? Regardless of something being peaceful, it still needs personal space! And like you said. Not all pearl gouramis are peaceful. They are gouramis after all.

    If I was put in a tank (what size) all by myself I would be quite grumpy as well.

    Most "unwanted" behaviour is often caused by the keepers themselves !
