I just got 3 pesrl gouramis about a week ago and my tank consists of tank ornaments/plants/gravel. My water parameters are:
Ammonia: 0
Njtrite: 0
Nitrate: 30

The little guy looks a little sick and hangs at bottom of tank or near my large amazom sword. He has like no color and his upper body is a dark brown. What might be going on? I checked his body and has no lesions or spots or fin rot.

Maybe it is getting bullied by the other two? Keep an eye on it.

I think they are all same sex, cause similar body features. Here is another one..and the 3rd stays under my boat alot. I havent noticed any bullying.

Mmmmmm thinking up loud now.
Do you notice the other two "rule" the upper part of the tank?
Sometimes a less dominant male is "forced" downwards / in hiding.

Therefor I doubt three males is a good idea.

I'll keep an eye on it and if it gets worse I'll add females to the tank. Thanks!!
