I thought that they were kissing kissing rather than “nipping.” The locking of mouths doesn’t harm the fish. If they were nipping that would be differentActually, no, this behavior removes the slime coat of fish, eventually killing them. Kissing gouramies are known to be highly aggressive even against other species.
I have 1 common pleco and the 2 kissers in a 75 for now. Ive also noticed the pleco chasing the bigger gourami around but i think it's because I don't keep a constant feeding schedule
