Hi, it's me, again. I was just wondering if my deseased betta(chewy and his girl missy) could have ghosts. Don't say I've been drinking too much because I'm 12 years old and I HAVE SEEN white fish shaped objects in my tank. The only fish in there is a white guppy.

    I won't say you have been drinking. If you are seeing them, then they must be there. I don't know whether they are ghosts or shadows or getting ready to go to another world but if you see them they are there.

    Thx charlie, it makes me fell better that they are still with me. and by white guppy I meant yellow and red guppy. And also thx for answering so many of my questions.

I am having two platinum gaurami. (male and female). Both are very healthy and male is very large and ruling the whole tank. One day in morning i found the male moving forth and back(its like dancing). And also i found some bubbles(not more) on the top of the tank. But the male is not near to it.(bubbles is in one corner and the fish is in another corner). I taught its ready for breeding. Then i decided if i kept this two fish in tank, other tank mates will eat the eggs. So before spawning i removed the two gaurami from the tank and kept in cemented tank in our garden around 30cm depth and water is around 12cm depth. But later i understand the nest is already built by male. I think I had done a worng thing. Will the male again built the nest for to spawn or how long it may take to built the next nest?

    Not sure how long it will take to build another nest, but if it is in spawning condition it will. If they are healthy and content, they will actively build bubble nests.

    Thank you mam for your reply. Nowadays they (both male and female) resting on bottom for most of their time. Only they coming to top of tank for to take oxygen and food. But they are very active while eating thier food. They are around 3 inches and 5 inches long. Is it s a good sign. I even cleaned my tank. But same result.

Are they really hybrids? I thought they where just selective bred Dwarf Gouramis. If so what are the probable parents?

    This is the most aggressive fish I have ever had. The other gouramis I've had (Pearl, Dwarf, and Flame) were territorial, but nothing on this level. Before I moved him into his own (smaller) home, he bullied my Dwarf Gourami to death, Terrified my tetras into a back corner and had even beaten my Zebra Danios into submission. The only thing he won't attack are shrimp. In my opinion, not the best community fish.

      I thought we were talking about Dwarf Gouramis, is that the one attacking the other fish?

      My powder blue is the most placid fish in the world and if anything is bullied by the other dwarf gouramis

      Females periodically release eggs. It is nothing to be concerned about, as they are not fertilized.

      Gouramis, are not commonly bred in home aquariums as fish such as guppies, or platies. It would take a great deal of steps to get them to breed. Generally, they do not interbreed, however it is possible.

    I have a Dwarf Gourami fish and the other fish that was in the tank with it bit its back fin (that other fish is dead now) I don't know how it died. I guess mostly I was wondering how long it takes for them to grow their tail fins back and basically how long can they live after having their back tail fin bit. Please respond back to me ASAP. Send me an e-mail with the response if you can. My e-mail is a_sweetgirl13@hotmail.com. Please I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You.

    Hi!
    I'm Tina, my dad owns a pretty big tank and we've had guaramis for at least 10 years now. Lemme think which ones we have had:
    -two Flame Dwarf -Two Honey -Two moonlight (currently in the tank)
    -four Gold -Two Powder Blue -one opaline (which I thought was a blue at first)
    -One Blue, I call him Buddy.
    At the moment we've got two moonlight, one opaline and one blue (and a white molly). Even though I don't take care of them, I love to watch them swim, they're so graceful and friendly! We have the tank in the dining room and at the dinner table I sit directly behind the fish. The blue guarami is extremely friendly and swims to my finger when I place it on the glass (the other fish hide in the corners they don't like me much). He also likes to "kiss" my finger if I stick it in the top of the tank (I wash my hands before and after of course!)
    Overall I think they're my favorite fish to have and I'd definately like to buy a tank and keep a dwarf or two of my own

    I have a blue gourami and I setup my first tank. I didn't know it when I bought my fish, but I've been reading and I'm not supposed to have him with any of the fish I have. My blue gourami is in a 30 gallon tank with 10 guppies a few mollies and 4 tetras.

      You are over the limit on how many fish for a tank. Rule of thumb is 1 gallon for ever inch your fih are going to be as an adult. You have to subtract gallons to allow for gravel and plants and decorations. So you have about 25 usable gallons. Gourami is going to be 6 inches and mollies are tiny. The good news is you can now justify that second tank you always wanted. The gourami is going to get large and the little tetras (and possibly the guppies - depending on kind) so the Gourami is going to see lots of food. Articles, you can have whatever fish you want - youjust need to make sure the enviornment is safe for all or you have more than one tank. So more good news, you can have all these fish. Bad news is you just can't have them all together - especially in this small a tank. Sorry but congratulations on a new tank. This is how I wound up with three tanks a whole bunch of years ago.

      You are over the limit a little but to be honest you can keep a lot more species with your gourami than you think (I have a betta with my gourami and they're fine)

      I tried putting a king betta in with my other fish didnt work he over powered the other fish and every morning I found him with a new dead fish in his mouth I had to put him in a decorative 1 gal tank seems alot more calm now in his decorative barrel. I am debating on putting him in with my 4 large gouramis am not worried over the betta he seems to be able to defend himself very well am worried over the gouramis.

      I have a 90 gallon fish tank and about 30 guppies all sizes even some fry and a blue gourami. The gourami is about five inches and I have never seen him attack another fish but he killed his partner and now he looks blotted up like a puffer fish with his scales sticking out. Is it bad for him? But I dont think you have to move him but don't buy any more fish.
