Female dwarf gourami attacking male
2 days after getting the center pieces for my 90lt, a male and a female dwarf gourami, he started showing signs of what i thought was a fungal infection on the base of his dorsal fin, pimafix and melafix for 3 days didnt do anything, if fact it was getting worse, not only was it on the fin but now a good 10mm of his body so i start thinking bacterial?
I go get so stuff for bacterial infection, 2 days later his dorsal fin is in 2 pieces and i am just watching him in the tank, at a loss for what to do, hes still eating, swimming but he has added hiding to his habits when she starts following him, she seems to be curious about his fin, she follows him for about 30secs then she bites him, a bit shocked by what i think i see, i wait to see if she does it again, sure enough, twice more and before i can get out a small temp tank and fill it, he is bleeding. Poor guy,
Is this common behaviour for dwarf gouramis?
I'll see if i can get a pic of his injuries
