Blue gourami's don't do well with conspecifics. Unless they pair up, I would attempt to rehome the male or female.

Gourami can be a hit or miss when you have more than one regardless. I would separate them.


Caleb

Might have a slight obsession with my fish

I can't go to my LFS for at least a week! I ordered a breeder box that also surves as an area for mean fish. The problem, it comes In Wednesday! What should I do?

Keep him netted or if you have another tank, put him in there.
