Hey all, tank details:
29 gallon planted
plenty of places to hide
12 gold tetras
2 male neon dwarf gouramis
water quality all fine, (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phos, gh
, ph, ect)
the problem is that one gourami is picking on the other, at first the other one was fighting back so i thought they would be ok but i came to the tank today, the bully is roaming free and the victim is loosing colour and sitting in the corner and startingto swim funny!
i know i have to do something about this, i am hell-bent on having 2 neon dwarf gouramis, and i hear males should be fine together its the male0female combo i thought i needed to watch out for, so i think ive just been unlucky. so my question is
do i return the bully or the victim?
i want to return the bully, but i dunno, what do u guys think, i have a quarantine tank that i can instantly cycle also, do you guys think if i isolate the bully for a week or two, and let the other one get more comfortable being in the tank, this might sort their issues out?
there should be a councillor fish that u can buy that sits them down and gets to the root of their problem. i guess the main issue is finding a writing pad thats small enough and waterproof :S
thanks for any help ppl
