    Not especially no, Although 'aggressive' is a relative term if you know what I mean?

    Compared to Mbuna, Arows or an Oscar? No
    Are the boys aggressively relentless when chasing the females to mate.. You could say that.

    I certainly wouldn't call mollys aggressive.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I repeat: 'Aggressive' is a relative term.

    You are going to need to provide FAR more details about your setup than you have so far if you are looking for a solution.

    Here's some info you can provide to start with:

    Tank size - Stock [Species & numbers] - Water Parameters - Filtration - Is it cycled - How long it has been set up - How long the stock has been together..?

    Ok, dumb question (and I don't mean it to start anything - you know me, i don't do drama)... but does the filtration, params, and cycle really affect if a fish is aggressive? i get that it could stress a little, but I think the major thing is tank size and stock

    But the OP says he has a gourami and mollys, aren't mollys brackish

    IME [& a bit of research will concur] Mollys are fine in FW, They love some hard water btw. A very adaptable fish.

    I was asking for so much because of the utter lack of details so far.

    ... When are water parameters & filtration NOT important? ;-)

    Doesn't it seem possible or even likely that the OP asking this question might not be familiar with cycling?.. After all, That's a fairly common occurrence around here.

    lol, and sadly you are right, I just feel like some people bombard newish members right away with stuff like that.

    But back to the OP...

    You say gouramie(s)... no matter what type it is (as far as i know), you shouldn't have more than 1 in that tank. Also, what sort of numbers are we talking here, that is a lot of species for a 18g tank

    I am certain you are overstocked which isn't helping, Post the above details please.
