    Getting two male gouramis is risky. I bought a red flame and a powder blue, and the flame terrorized the blue to the point it stopped eating. At that point I took the blue back to the LFS.

    This is a good idea, I wanted to encourage my fish to use the top-third of the tank more as well, but I'm taking a different approach.

    I made a hinged cover with my tank using plexiglass, and have...
