Anytime a fish is being picked on can be cause for concern, it can cause stress or worse. Are you able to separate the fish? If not sometimes lots of plants/decor can break the line of aggression.

Good choice, its sad to see a fish go but as owners of a living thing we have to do what's best for them.

I hear you on the picking situation as my gourami isn't amused at having to share space with koi.
