I have a nice large gold gourami about 6 inches, I give him betta pellets because he doesn't eat a lot of flake food, he ate my 3 black skirt tetras and my rosy tetra, he is in a 30 gallon heated aquarium with light & internal filter, as well as a corydora from when I used to breed cory's, I bought a female Opaline gourami about 3.5 inches 2 days ago, she hides a lot, the gold gourami has begun to build a bubble nest, I know some people who cross breed them in a 55 gallon, I'm wondering if it will work out for me in my 30 gallon.

Hi I have a 1,200 gallon pond I have one of these fish and they are awesome. He is in the pond with 3 Dragon fish I have had for 4 years now. I also have 2 pacus. The key to doing this is filters and size of pond. I do not take water out much. I have a preform 60 gallon pond I use as a filter that spills over into the big pond. If you are going to have these fish try a pond they will love it.

    Hi Pete, I have two mature Albino Giant Gouramis in my Koi Carp pond here in Thailand. Both GG's are around 20 inches long. The pond is 25,000 litres and the GG's get on well with the Koi. They are truly awesome fish.

    Hi Pete:
    Sounds nice. Which fish grow faster, the Pacus or the Gourami? I am looking for a fast growing fish that is omnivorous or herbivorous and also will get large like the Pacu or the Gourami. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have 6 dwarf blue gouramis in my big 180l tank with other tankmates such as swords, platies, neons etc and they get along fine. The gouramis I have noticed tend to be alot more frenzied at feeding time so I think that they need more food than most, have started feeding pellets as well as my usual foods and it means they can pick at the pellets between feeding times. This seems to work well. hope this helps

Hi I have 2 kissing gourami's in with a siamese fighting fish and 5 neon tetra's and I'm really worried about one of my kissing gourami as it keeps skitting across the top of the tank and putting its head out of the water, and then once it has done that, it floats on its side up to the top of the water stays there for about 5 mins then moves and does it again? Can you help me pleassseee? xx

    Hello my name is Holly it sounds like you might have high ammonia in your tank. If it's not that then high nitrates in your water do you have a test kit for your fish?
  • kesler - 2011-02-13
    The fighting fish you have is probably bullying the kissing gourami. I would remove the siamese fighting fish and keep it separate.
  • jessi - 2012-06-07
    Your kisser may also just have a problem with its swim bladder. This can happen with almost any fish and it will eventually right itself but this may happen again if this is the case. Though it seems worrysome I have had a goldfish that did exactly what you are describing off and on for 2 years. and I would only remove the fighting fish if you see him picking on the kisser or the kissers fins are getting torn. I currently have one in with 2 male and 3 female bettas and they don't get in each others way at all.

    Check water levels.  Maybe get some more oxygen into the tank.

Hey my blue gouramis just laid eggs and the fry hatched early this morning. Both parents are still in there but I am going to remove them both later today but what can I feed the fry?

    You will need to lower the water level down to about half to make it easier for the fry to get to the top. Do this with a sponge. You can feed them newly hatched brine shrimp or liquid fry food. Good luck!
  • Friendttyy - 2012-06-07
    Leave the male and take away the female. The female will munch on em while the male protects them. PS.watch the male gobble and spit them into the nest. Take out the male once the fry are free swimming.

I have had pink kissers for 3 years now and I have had good mixed with bad luck. I have made the mistake of trying to find mine a mate and the new mate, though smaller, killed the one I already had, but a few months ago I obtained a blue gourami and the kisser and her seem to get along fine. The blue taps my kissers with her little tendrils at feeding time which irritates her to no end but during the day they seem to get along fine. They are both the same size at about 4 inches and in a vast community with a range of fish some people say can't be mixed but mine thrive nonetheless.

I have put two blue guramis in large tank with other fish all put in tank at same time. The blue guramis bully and chase one larger marbled angel fish, who has a fin missing (like it when we got him) all the time but don't seem to bother any other fish. Will this stop in time? I don't know what sex they are. I was wondering whether to take them back to the fish centre and change them, but I really like the blue guramis as they are so attractive.

    Yes, they are attractive but there is no way to know if they will stop bullying the marbled angel fish. Mayb it's a chase game, maybe it is I don't want you in here or in my territory - If you like the gouramis - keep them and then watch or remove the angel fish if there are any major signs of agression. Just could be newness.
  • sandy mclintock - 2012-01-25
    Thanks, I will keep an eye on them, I feel sorry for the poor old angel fish!
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-01-25
    Yeah, I feel sorry for the Angel fish also. Maybe the Gouramis that are new are just making sure they have their terriotry or maybe there is agression going on. Real hard to tell. If agression, just move the angel fish and get that little one another angel to play with.

    I once had a blue gourami that was so mean that I caught a blue gill from a pond and put it in a tank with him and he killed it and it was the same size as him.
  • Friendttyy - 2012-06-07
    Are the gouramis dark blue cause if they are ya better get them their own tank if they are a pair. They are ussually friendly.
