Agressive Dwarf Gourami's?

Hi there,

I have two male gourami's that are living with 5 endlers, 5 rummy nose tetra and two upside down catfish in a 95L semi-planted tank. In the last 2 weeks I have noticed they are flaring? at each other and have a few scales missing? I'm wondering if i should seperate them or if I added another 1-2 would that help? I really love having them in the tank together as they look gorgeous but want them to be happy.

Any suggestions?

I don't know about the dwarf Gourami but I was speaking to a person that breeds the hatchback Gourami and he told me he wouldn't have anything less than 5 together. He also said they do better in a tank that doesn't get disturbed often. Seem to be easily stressed. It might be something to look into.

Ill endorse what riff said and add more cover as that will lesson the stress, if you cant add more plants then try driftwood it just makes it harder to swim in a staight line and attack another fish.

Cheers
