Hey guys. I recently set up a 10 gallon tank with a honey gourami and 5 CPDs. The m:f ratio is 4:1. So what do I do? Return 2 males and get 2 females?

hi, you are better off returning the males; your better off 3 females to every male. With 4 males to 1 female, they will constantly chase her, stressing her out and it may lead to a death.

That leaves me with 1 female. Could I add 3 more females and 2 males?
