Adding to that, I am going to give it a few more days but like I said I got that dwarf gourami to go in the tank with the Honey but it doesnt seem like they really give a hoot about each other. I've also started to notice the Honey I have left has been hiding in the back of the tank behind my plants and logs since I took the small one out of the tank. Should I go get another Honey for it ? I honestly dont think I have anymore room left to spare fish wise with the addition of the dwarf. Normally its always out in front of the tank swimming around and gets close to the glass when me or my wife walk by so there has definitely been a change it.Bullying doesn't have to be physical, it can be chemical as well.
Fish secrete pheromones and allomones. These are chemical signals which are picked up by fish of the same species (pheromones) and different species (allomones). These signals include aggression signals which stress other fish. We cannot see this type of bullying.
