Hello

Its possible I've just made a huge mistake... I have a large Angel in my 100 litre tank, and I just added a 7cm three spot gourami, and a smaller gourami at the same time. The angel seems to dislike them somewhat and has chased them periodically, nipping them once or twice. The larger gourami also had a little attack at the angel at one point.
Is this due to the fish being terratorial - will they become more peaceful to each other with time? or should I return the gourami to the pet shop quickly?
I was under the impression the two species would be OK together, and I mentioned to the shop assistant that I had an angel already, but she said it would be fine.

Ste.

A 100 litre tank is too small to allow each of these territorial species enough space.

If you can return them it would be for the best but in the meantime moving decor so the line of sight across the tank is broken will allow the bullied fish some respite.
