Karen B. Posted August 26, 2021 Share Posted August 26, 2021 Greetings! I currently have a 20 gallons planted community tank slightly overstocked : 1 honey gourami, 10 chili rasboras, 7ish corydoras (I sometimes see fry), maybe 5 otocinclus (haven’t seen them in a while, I have been away for 2 weeks). Few weeks ago I changed my filter and the behavior of my fishes changed. I don’t know if it’s the bubbles that the filter produced that enabled reproductive behavior in my honey gourami (bubble nest) and I never saw him actively harass my chili rasboras, but for weeks they stayed in a corner of the tank, swimming in place. It was also where the honey gourami would hang out and I rarely saw them swim away when he was coming. They don’t care about him/are not scared to come out and eat. Now, things seem to be back to normal, with my chili swimming pretty much all over the tank. I know honey gourami are social fish so I wanted to get him a girlfriend but I am afraid it will trigger aggression if they get into breeding mode and my chili rasboras will be back in a corner… What do you think? I don’t have much of a back up plan if things don’t work out with the femake - only place I could move her is a 10 gallons that has 7 green neon tetras.
