Today I think my Dwarf Gourami killed my male guppy. I am not sure if it was Dwarf (that’s his name) did kill him but all I have in my tank is Dwarf, 15 Ghost Shrimp, 2 Algae Eaters, and 11 Guppies. I just went get some more today. But they are mostly about 3 months I think. What is the breeding age for Guppies? When is the male of breeding age and when is the female? (In most species the male is sexually mature before the females are) Does anyone know if Gourami’s will eat the tail of guppies and kill them? If so should I move him into a 2.5-gallon tank? I really don’t want to move him but if he is killing my guppies that I plan to breed then I guess I will need to. And does a betta give off a chemical or something that will kill my fish. Someone at Wal-Mart told me that. So I took him out of the tank and put him in a small betta tank that is probably 1 gallon. It is the kind of tank that has a separator but I am not using the separator.
