Ah I see well I was asking because I was made aware recently that I can't just keep a few males together because of aggression and was totally bummed out.

I feel it depends. But 90% of the time it doesn't work. Mine get along fine and they've matured and fully grown. Good luck gouramigal!

Smile Update

Okay, so its been 8 days since we began with Samzter's technique. Our male is constructing a bubble nest, and our female is BIG! They spend a surprising amount of time checking each other out through the glass, and the male actually rubs and bumps his snout into the glass when she is very close. The temp in the tank is 79.9 F. I would like to turn it up just a smidge, but he has constructed a portion of his nest around my access point! It is so awesome just to sit and watch them!

Had to remove female from tank just a few hours into putting her in with the male. He was too aggressive and beat her up to bleeding! Is this normal?

Yes, sometimes that does happen but it's never happened to me. Can you try another female?

You'll need to make a thread of your own for this topic by going to the freshwater getting started forum. My guess is that your tank is cycling? Once you make your thread, we would be happy to help
