Hm. Well, I'll stand ready to remove any if necessary. I do enjoy watching them!

That's how you learn A lot of people are afraid of taking risks and pushing limits....but if you never test a "limit", then you have no idea what is and isn't possible. And you will learn more about what is and isn't possible by making "mistakes" than by doing what you are told, though the only mistakes are experiences that you did not learn from.

Not meaning to hijack or anything, but can single gouramis live by themselves? As in being the only fish in the tank. I've been curious about this, even more so now that I read here that males don't dwell well together.

What I notice about them so far is that each seems to be keeping to a separate area in the tank. It's a very heavily planted tank with a good number of floating plants that tend to migrate to the right. One is mostly staying under the floaters, one is living amongst some cabomba on the left, and one seems to be venturing through the middle of the tank.

You can trust aqadvisor if you like, but I prefer to pay more attention to people's actual experience.
Honestly, I far prefer to pay attention to advice sources that collate the experience of multiple people, like AQadvisor and others. The problem with listening to individual stories is that you end up hearing so very many conflicting accounts, and then what it truly comes down to is that--often--you simply choose to believe what you'd like to believe rather than what may be the truth.

A great deal of that is simply ingrained in me, though, because a huge portion of my day job involves research. If I were to use individuals' experiences as the basis for fact-checking, I'd have gone out of business long ago!

The one that is moving about the tank is likely the dominant one. The fish are still new though, so it's too early to really say anything about their behavior. Typically though, aggression is felt before it's seen - outright attacks are the last stage, not the first. The lesser fish will try to avoid and submit to appease the dominant fish. This may work for a period of time.

Aqadvisor is a tool. It's good for some things, and not so good for others. I remember when the guy created it - I contributed information and advice.

I LOVE my dwarf gourami, Squirt! He is my avatar. I used to have two, but as you have heard they are very susceptible to an almost always fatal bacterial disease. 1 in 5 DG have it.

Iridovirus. Unforunately they can spread it to other fish, too, so it is vital to always quarantine your DGs.

Life.
