Peacock goby and pea puffs

So I spoke to the lfs and they said that peacock gobys are fine to be with pea puffers. Since they went in the male has been chasing the larger pea puffs.

Must admit I thought the problem would have been the puffers if there was gonna be one. He won't really leave them alone its been 3 days and contemplating moving the 3 peacocks to my bigger community tank.

Do you think that would be a better idea? Really didn't think they'd be aggressive, read that they aren't aggressive and meant to be really peaceful.

I'd be happy to move them if that's the right decision or do you think he'd calm down.

Huh so strange thought they'd be really peaceful too. My other tank is all community fish like tetra, corys etc so maybe suit that tank better

Think I'm gonna try and plant it more and see if that improves it

When I first added a school of small glowlight tetras to our tank that already had two peacock gudgeon, they chased the new fish around for a few days before settling back into the peaceful routines. Now they all swim together, especially feeding time

Well that's good to know thank you. I've just add more plants to the tank and some more cave areas. Fingers crossed I'll leave them for a few days and see what happens. They are all new to the tank so maybe its a territory thing too

Yeah I had a hard time finding them too actually hence why I'm really trying to make this work. Do you feed live or do they accept flake/pellet food?
