I have recently gotten these two dwarf gouramis. As you can see the blue one has a bitten tail as the other bigger red one keeps on nipping it. How do I solve this problem without needing to return my fish to the store? Would the red dwarf gouramis eventually stop doing it? Thanks

Both are male, and males fight. Best bet is to separate them to separate tanks or return one. They will not share a tank peacefully.
