Paradise Fish Trouble

  • #1
I have 2 Paradise Gourami in a 20 long and theyve been in there for a week and a half now. Recently ones been getting very very colorful and staying to the dark corners almost motionless, while the other looks more pale and is more active, I don't know if one's gonna die or if they're breeding or if one's bullying the other. Please help

One is bullying the other. I'd return one of them immediately, before he gets attacked or killed.

Temp?
Parameters?
Tankmates?
Hiding areas?

It's probably aggression.

It's probably aggression.

Temp is 79 F, Parameters, nitrite & nitrate at 0, alkalinity is ideal, water is soft, only the two paradise fish, tank not yet scaped(meaning no hiding spots, all I have in there is substrate) the 20 long is basically a holding tank so I can get the other tanks readied up to put the two paradise in there.

Paradise fish prefer cooler water around 70 degrees.

I would just stock with one paradise gourami. If they're already not getting along, it likely won't improve.

So I just moved my paradise to my 10 gallon because my mom started freaking out thinking itll get killed. I don't know if I should keep them there or move them again because I don't know how it'll do with it's new tank mates heres a list of what the paradise will have to live with for now:

3 Fancy Guppies
1 Platy
2 Mollies
1 Snail (forgot which type)
3 ghost shrimp

I'd rehome him. Your 10 gal is already overstocked, and that's not a permanent solution for him.
