Maybe your fish are different over there but these ones will only grow to 2 inches max. And females aren't really available at our pet shops. Aggression won't be bad as long as there are no females. If you have both then you need a good ratio but if you have only males it will be fine, not to mention these fish have grown up together already in the pet shop..

When you ignore me I understand. When you don't reply I understand. When I stop caring I hope YOU understand.

Because that's where I got my information from about the gobys, I also got info from this site too http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...978&pcatid=978 where it states how they are a brackish fish, and can do okay in a community setting. I've also been feeding them a frozen mix of blood worms, daphnia and shrimp. I've highered the PH to 7.

The ammonia is coming down and I have actually had no more fish deaths. I am doing about half tank water changes every 2 days.

these two sites say to add salt. I can do this as I have AQ salt? I found a bubble nest the other night and watch two of my gouramis go under it and what looked like to me that they were both building the nest together

Bleh that should say "And I watched two of my gourami go under it and do what looked like to me was them working together building the nest "
