Agressive Blue Gourami
I'm new to this forum and to the freshwater tanks world :)
I have a 29 Gal, platies, mollies, guppy, etc., and my gourami is the opaline/blue one. I have 2 of them and and just added a male dwarf.
So, the problem is one of them looks happy (because it is dark in color and hangs from mid to top of the tank) while the other two are not (more pale). Also, the unhappy ones are always at the bottom and like to be hidden behind/in objects/plants in the tank. One more observation, the happy one likes to chase the other unhappy ones?? I don't know what to do and why one is happy and the others not???
I moved the agressive one of the tank then the other blue acted the same to the new male??!
Thanks guys in advance..

A 29 gallon is far too small for more than one gourami as you describe. Please try to rehome two of them and only keep a single specimen.8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.
