I have found with my male paradise fish of which I was lucky enough to score when they were young and un coloured, lived with each other in a 2 ft tank with guppies, 1 glass cat and pleco's. After maturing I was worried they would turn agressive towards each other or other fish. They did not. I eventualy found 1 female paradise and added her with my 2 males. No fights, no territory clash's. After a few weeks one of he males built a nest and had it fertilized etc, then a few days later the other did the same. Between the 2 males the female was bullied to death but the spawn still went ahead. Then I had lots of paradise fish. My point is all fish have individual personalitys, and after having 2 breeding males in 1 small tank I think individuality should be taken into account.

    Definitely all things are individuals but there just basic 'generalizations' which I hate to use but sometimes should keep in the back of my mind.  The two fellas got along but the the gal is dead. No gal and no fighting - put the gal in and ---- well boys will be boys.

One person by the name Dayaratne managed to breed red fin giant gouramis in the year 2008. He is the only person who have been successful in breeding this fish in Sri lanka. The adult male and female probably would have been imported from Sabah, Malaysia. I make this assumption because of the intense red colour on the tails and fins. He can be contacted on 033-2290466 or 011-22864413

I have bought a male betta yesterday and just in 1 day the colour of its fins have faded a lot. I'm worried about its life. What is the cause of this and what to do now???

    Stress. Keep him in clean water and feed well it will come back.

First, my male Betta made a bubble nest and then the next day there was not 1 bubble, was just wondering why that happened. Second, my male and female constantly race each other to the ends of the tanks ( theres a divider between them ). Lastly, every time I go to sleep I hear water splashing in the tank. ( when I check the fish, there both sleeping )

    Maybe all that splashing you hear at night, and the racing around the tank is disrupting the bubble nest.
  • lindsey escudero - 2012-07-30
    The splashing your hearing may be the filter if you have one. The reason thee bettas chase each other around is because the male wants to defend his territory and the female is challenging him. Of coarse they can't really do any thing because they are divided, but do not at any occasion put them togethor......someone will die

    I have a female and male seamise fighter fish with other fish in my tank and none of them fight. Sometime the male and female fighter swim together but other than that they stay out of the way. Males can't go together

There seems to be two different type of Red tail gourami in the asian market now, one is called purple red, this I believed is breed locally, the other is the taiwanese strain of red tail gourami, this fish have got very white base. Both are of the same strain, I believed the lighter colour strain are from selective breeding, in the wild they are much darker base.

The first batch that was brought in from Sabah,( about 15 years back) are caught using fishing tackle, and they will normally regurgitate out the fishing hook after a week in captivity.

Now they are being bred in captivity in hatchery within Malaysia.
That all I have to share for now.

    Yes you are correct. There are two types in the market. The tail and fins of 1 type has very intense red colour while the body is quite darker than the other type. The tail and fins of the other type does not show such intense red and is more dull orange than red.

Hi I have a female halfmoon (named Blenny) with red fins n white body with my gold fishes.  I'm too sad to see it doesn't eat food and goes slyly around. Do I have to get a partner such that it gets free of lonliness. There's no harm when I keep it with my gold fish (I feel theres competition of food likely),,,,,,,,,,,,need guidance.

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.
