I had a male betta in my tank for a long time with no problems until I bought a female gourami. ...
Then the betta started building a bubble nest and chasing all the other fish away. I had to return the gourami to the store. Just wanted to share that. Gouramis do resemble female bettas so I think it was a case of mistaken identity.
Fish typically know the difference between species. Guoramis are typically peaceful fish, but they are prone to killing smaller fish and long-tailed fish. Aggression is also a concern when the tank is overcrowded.
The bubble nest is just a sign of happiness, not necessarily of breeding.
I read just now that bettas are a type of gourami. I'm sure the betta reacted to the female gourami being added. It happened instantly. I removed her and the tank returned to a state of peace.
