and yeah that could have happened w the pearl gourami I guess but she was pretty much fully grown and much much bigger than the rams. I never saw tham squabble but I wasn't watching the tank 24/7 either so who knows.
Yeah over the counter antibiotics for fish are not really available in the UK. Ive not lost fish now thiugh in several weeks so Im hoping it's going ok now and that the tank is back. The vallisneria is starting to grow back now as well
