"I have 2 gold gouramis that I bought from the same tank together when they were both just about the same size. I believe they are both males due to the shape of their dorsal fins. The problem I am having though, is that one of the gouramis seemed to be the more aggressive one...but it has gotten to the point now where he is significantly larger than his fellow counterpart and will chase the smaller one into the top corner of the tank behind the filter and nip at his little fins. I am very distraught over this as I don't know if they will outgrow this, or if my smaller less aggressive gourami will be forever confined to one corner of the tank behind the filter. The larger begins chasing the smaller to that exact spot in the tank every time and once the smaller one stays put in the corner, the larger will leave him alone and swim he's showing him his place in the tank. I know they can be extremely territorial fish, but I feel so bad for my smaller gourami who is always stuck in the corner. Also, I am afraid the stress may be affecting him, and that maybe he isn't as large because he isn't getting enough food due to the larger gourami. Honestly, I've been in the process of getting another tank to separate him and see how he does without his bully of a counterpart chasing him all day. I really hope it works out for both fish."
