Hello, I have had my tank for about a month now and it has gone really well. It is a nice calm 20g community tank; untill I placed 3 hatchet fish and a red dwarf gourami in the tank. My blue gourami who is named Apollo has been chasing my new fish. I have also seen signs that Apollo has been biting at to hatchet fish. Apollo has been nice and calm so far. What should I do?

The blue gourami seems to be calming down now... He still is chasing the fish... Just slighty less

I would recommend rearranging the decorations and such and maybe add some hiding places.

I expected the tetras to be fine because I have 11 of them and only 3 hatchet fish

Some fish are naturally going to chase others, you have to decide how much is play and how much is bullying. Rearranging the tank and adding more hidey holes should help, getting a larger tank might help as well.
