    My glass fish are getting aggressive well not aggressive as they are only 2 inches but the 2 larger ones seem to be fighting charging at each other and chasing the smaller one and when I feed they chase the smaller one away should I get more I only have 3 A’s they are schooling fish and I have one other dwarf gourami thoughts on getting another one for my 10 gallon or is that pushing it ? Lmk what u guys think

    What kind of glass fish are they? Cats or tetras? Either way, adding more to the school is usually the easiest and best method to help curb aggression if your tank is large enough to handle it.

    Sounds like your Glass Fish are two males and a female, and the boys are interested in mating. Assuming that these are a Parambassis species, they are found in huge schools in the wild, often numbering in the thousands. If it is the common species, you could probably add another in that 10, but I'd say that's kind of a small tank for even the three that you already have.
