Help! Why are male gouramis committing suicide?
I originally had 2 powder blue gouramis that were very sluggish. One became strong and lively, while the other refused to eat and eventualy died. I was told by a pet shop that I needed more than 2 so there wouldnt be a dominant/passive dynamic. While they were both alive, I added 2 flame orange gouramis, that look just like the blue ones except for their color. At first all was well with the orange fish, then the above mentioned blue gourami died, now one of the orange gouramis is becoming listless and not eating! Do I need to have more or fewer male gouramis? These guys are really strange. Is there anything I can do to keep this orange gourami alive? He still seems healthy if I can figure out how to make him happy and start eating again. Thank you for any help you can offer.
