Hello all,

I have a 75 gallon peaceful community tank.
I have 3 honey gouramis in a 10 gallon that where quarantining.
They are healthy and ready to be added into the 75 gallon tank.
However, two of my rams are raising wrigglers now, and I’m worried the honey gouramis may be attacked since they would be unfamiliar.
The honeys are young and are about an inch long maybe slightly larger.
The rams have never attacked another fish and even let others come within 3 inches of the fry and only gently nudge them away if they actively go for the fry. They are much more gently than my other breeding pair.
I have another breeding pair in the tank and they two pairs breeding seems to always be staggered so there is almost always babies.
Any advice for when/how to add my honeys to the tank?

Thanks for any advice :)

I know no one knows my fish as well as I do.
But has anyone ever added new fish to the tank while Bolivians rams where raising fry?
If so how did they react?

Should I try adding them, and just observe carefully?
This might be your best answer, the situation is somewhat unique. It’s a large tank so I imagine it’ll be fine. From my understanding Rams are more pushy than anything. :)
