I can easily determine the sexual difference at first sight...(only from adult balloon kissing gouramis)...also I have bred about 1500-2000 fishes at a time.

My girlfriend and I have 3 fish tanks. One is a 14 gallon containing 15 fish, 13 of them are a mixture of common goldfish and fantails, the other two are plecos, all get along quite well and have alot of porsonality. The second tank is a 20 gallon we bought a week ago and it contains two kissing gourami, two plecos, three mollies, and two dwarf gourami, one male and one female. The dwarf gourami are wonderful, they usualy stay near the bottom of the tank and hide in a skull ornament, but when they are out and about the tank they show off wonderful color and the male will sometimes closely follow one of the kissing gourami. They are a wonderful addition to a tank and can swim very fast and sometimes jump out of the water. This fish has a great personality. The third tank I bought the morning after we got the 20 gallon, it's a 55 gallon and is a work in progress and I hope by tommorrow (thanks to Animal-World) I will have an amazon puffer and two bosemans rainbow fish to put in it, this site is a great information source.

This is my favourite fish. Im sitting here now watching a Power Blue tending his nest and eggs. For some reason he keeps shooting water at me when I approach, just like an Archer fish would! Amazing.

    I have two neon gourami one male and female, male shoots water at me like your fish. It's amazing I don't know why he does that:-)
  • bluegourami - 2011-08-03
    I actually read somewhere that these fish shoot water out to catch bugs and other things that could be hovering over the water. It could just be instinct...he sees you and knows food but innate abilities kick in and he does what he would normally do to catch the food :)

    Sounds like a fungus.  Try an antifungal.

Hi, I recently got back into fish-keeping after a few years out, and have a 75gallon setup. It is now established and working well. About a month ago, I added a pair of small (2 to 3 inch) golden gouramis. The male was always a little bit of a bully, but never really hurt anything. One morning, I came down and the female was dead. No real signs of damage, so I put it down to a little back luck. Earlier today, I replaced the female with a new one. She is bigger, and had good spirit when in the shop. After introducing her, she is being mercilessly chased and bitten on the body just in front of her tail. Does anyone know if this is an example of typical behavior? Or am I looking at something else? Many thanks Keith

    That is not typical of these fish.  How are water levels?
  • Anonymous - 2012-11-04
    Thanks for your rely, and the confirmation of what I had suspected. Not normal behavior. The water is generally very good, using ammonia and 8 component test strips. Ammonia did go a little high recently, but have vacuumed the bottom, treated with ammonia neutralizing agent and done partial water change. Letting settle a bit. None of the fish seem distressed in any way, and the bullying is tearing the females fins. I was thinking of isolating the male for a little, to see if that would help.

    You may just have a really foul tempered male.  You can try to add a couple more females to the mix.  Might spread out it's aggression and not be to bad.

When I was a kid my dad bred blue paradise gouramis and sold them to local pet stores. Twenty years later I have become a fish fanactic with 9 active tanks running each with different species. I live near Corpus Christi, TX and aquatic pet shops are scarce. I was asked one of my regular shop owners to order me some paradise fish with their next order and they did. I am more than excited to follow in my dads footsteps in breeding these beautiful fish. And boy did I save a LOT of money by doing this! I've been considering buying them online at a cost of $5-7 each plus around $30 shipping, however when I went to pick them up at the fish shop I paid $1.95 each!! I am blessed! :)

Hi, I found this really neat fish on thatpetplace.com called the south american leaf fish and the banded leaf fish, I was wondering how to breed these fish and if I could keep them with bettas in a heavely planted tank.

    You could probably keep female bettas with those other fish, but a male betta would kill it as soon as it found it.
  • Kait - 2012-04-18
    Actually they are aggressive fish. The male is anyway. Females for the most part are peaceful. The male will violently tear the other fish apart literally. That's kinda why they are called 'fighting fish'.
  • Rachel - 2012-09-30
    Actually, male betta are only aggressive to other male bettas, and sometimes other brightly colored fish like fancy guppies. They're mostly peaceful with other species as long as they don't mistake them for another male betta. I have one in my community tank with mollies and angelfish.
