Bully Gourami - If I Kept More, Will They Settle?

I have 1 dwarf gourami in a 20 gallon tank - with tetras and cories

he keeps chasing the other fish around.

I was wondering, if I kept more gourami (maybe 3), will he stop chasing my other fish??

also, when keeping gourami in groups of 3....should they all be the same species of gourami ??

HI~ :)

Before I had my goldfish, I had a dwarf Gourami and a regular Gourami, The smaller of the 2 ended up fighting the larger one. I learned from my expreince with them and friends that have had them that they do a little better when kept in the same size range, EX: Dwarfs toghether and so on..

That might of just been a fluke though, You may indeed be able to keep both types togehter. I am just leary on it after I saw my babies maul each other!! They were incrediably mean to each other. <_<

I think they do better in groups from what I can remember though.

Gouramis are realated to bettas so they shouldnt be kept with other males unless the tank is a lot bigger so they can get their own territory.

To stop the aggression to other fish get 2 female dwarf gourami and he will have something exciting to chase!
