Sad, just found another of my honey gouramis dead. I now have 3 left, little, medium and large. I think the large one must be killing the others. This sucks.

Yeah, Gouramis can be very territorial. Most Dwarf Gouramis that are sold are male. If they are in a heavily planted tank, they may get along better, but perhaps rehome the smaller ones ?

I had a Siamese Algae Eater that I liked but he was getting too big for my 10 gal tank so I took him back to the shop to trade him in for a smaller version. They gave me a Chinese Algae Eater instead of a Siamese and I didn't check it until I dumped it into the tank. It quickly grew larger than the fish it replaced. If I can catch it I will put him up for auction at the fish society meeting this fall. He chases other fish, particularly the Orocincluses.
That looks like a very large Angel Fish. I am guessing about the size of a burger bun.

Yeah the big angle's body is about the size of a burger bun, basically the size of my palm. The CAE I had just had to go, they were way to much stress on the other fish. They were about 6-7 inches long.

Arghhh!!!!! Just found another of my honey gouramis dead. I now have 2 left, the two largest. This is ridiculous, I'm not getting any more of these. Nothing else is dieing and the water and tank conditions are great.

Thanks. I am very frustrated. This blows.

Well I haven't lost any more HGs. I needed something to cheer me up today, been a hard week, so I added 5 more blood fin tetras. The entire tank is in an uproar, lol. Everyone is chasing everyone else and pestering each other. It will settle down in a day or two.
