Oh wow really new. It will take time, they are very shy creatures. This is why lush cover should be in the tank. It took about a day or two for my ghosts and amanos to venture out.

Sorry for the late reply. I think the gourami might be an issue, I think they are food for them.

They'll still pick at them... I had kerri tetras trying to eat mine. When I first got mine, they instantly hid. I didn't see them for a couple weeks. Then they started coming out. Once one felt comfortable, they all did. My male apisto ate them all though

I have 8 in a 55g with a lot of places to hide there are 2 that wonder around and no one seems to bother them they get close but then become uninterested and swim off I'm just wondering how many I can have in my tank

I see my RCS mostly at feeding time. I drop in a sinking food and come back 20 minutes later to watch them cluster around and eat. I keep a shrimp and snails only tank, so no-one steals their food or eats their young. I currently have 12 in a 2.5 gallon, the below pic was taken in my 75 gallon before I took that down.
