I have 2 male blood sword tails, and they are picking at 12 of my rasboras occasionally, and frequently picking at my 1 dwarf gourami. i added a bunch of plants and made one corner very dense with plants, the gourami is fine now. but i'm worrying about the harlequin rasboras.

As you found out swords can be aggressive toward some fish.

If you have only had the swords a short period of time, let it got for now, and they may calm down and work out well. If they don't, the options are removing them or adding about 4 female swords for them to chase around.
