Karen B. Posted January 5, 2022 Share Posted January 5, 2022 Beside the fact that I when I started the hobby, I picked a 20 gallons convinced « I would never need a bigger aquarium », I think my biggest regret is buying 2 females honey gourami for my male. I had Pikachu for over a year, alone, and I felt guilty because everywhere I read, it said they were social creatures and enjoyed the company of their specy. Finally I found 2 females but adding them to the tank didn’t have the result I was hoping. Pikachu is on one side, patroling and chasing the female back to their side whenever he sees one. Dahlia and Tiffany are on the other side of the aquarium, picking at plants, minding their business but checking Pikachu. They don’t seem afraid of him though as they do not hide or stay in one spot. The female tolerate each other, don’t actively chase each other but one is clearly dominant. Very far from the happy family swimming fins into fins together like I had imagined.
