    hello,
    I have 2 blue and 3 yellow gouramis. 1 yellow gourami has started making a bubble nest. for 3 days now he chases everybody away. i have an 80gal tank so nobody is getting hurt.
    how long will this last? should he be seperated?

    Males of species who blow bubble-nests will usually do so as long as they stay in a breeding mood. Which isn't a bad thing, it just means he's healthy. If no one's getting hurt, don't worry about it, just remove or break up the bubble-nest every few days so that he can't entice a female under it for breeding. If he does manage to breed with a female, use a net to collect the bubble nest and dispose of it. Transferring it to another tank is unlikely to go well, and breeding inside the tank isn't an option.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.
