    hi everyone. for the first time i am keeping a gourami tank and have 1x male and 2x female dwarf gouramis also 2x peppered cory's. the tank is 125 litres but the male dwarf is attacking both females! he has started what i think is a bubble nest (looks the same as my male siamese fighters) and was wondering if this aggressive behaviour is normal?? also would i be able to keep kribs and german rams in there too?

    I have kept gourami's but your tank appears a little on the small size for three (I had a 283 liter for two and with a lot of plants it worked). Normally, two females to a single male is the correct ratio. The issue (I am guessing here) is maybe hidding area's for the females and to a lesser extent, available volume. Other fish (community types) are generally fine with gourami's.

    If the nest has eggs, this is a very different issue - the male will not tolerate any fish (females included) to be anywhere near the nest. Might need to remove the females ... . The tank is too small for the females to easily hide from the male. You may need a divider.

    So, try adding real or fake plants, some wood and maybe some other objects to create hidding areas and break up the tank's areas so the fish can exstablish areas of their own.
