I have a 150gallon aquarium. A great majority of what I have are gourami of all different types. I have opaline, 3 spot in blue and gold, moonlight, and snakeskin. I even have a couple blood red dwarfs, a giant dwarf, a honey and a sunset dwarf. All these guys share the tank with bala sharks, serpae tetras, and angels. Everybody gets along. The dwarfs have the hardest time, but even they no where to get outta the way from time to time. I'm glad that I havent had to deal with the territoriality. These guys are so beautiful!

I have had a female opaline for around 3 months now as I wanted something different for my 26G community tank. She is a stunning fish, very peaceful and swims around the tank very gracefully. She will feel the other fish with her pectoral fins and I think they may be ambush predators as she likes to emerge from the undergrowth from nowhere. She accepts all foods and even eats hair algae from the plants. They look quite washed out in the shop but she coloured up beautifuly once she settled in.....I would recommend this fish.

I had my betta for 5 months! His light bulb went out so my dad bought a new one. My fish's name is Lu, he's like 2in. I feed him 3-4 pellets a day. I learned that they are carnivores! That's so cool. If u want to figure out more about them, then keep reading peoples comments. Good bye, u r welcome.

I have a Beautiful betta fish named Neptune and he's different shades of blue. My sister has one too named Sundancer. He's red and purple. A week after she got sunny(his nickname) he started puffing. I had no idea what he was doing! But that's good for them. So now they are living happily ever after.

I just got my Gold Gourami from a little mom and pop style shop called The Reef. He's about 4.5 inches long and he's absolutely beautiful and so far, doesn't seem to be that aggressive. But I know he can hold his own 'cause they had him in a tank with around 4 aronawas, three other male gold gourami his size (one was a real scrapper), albino and common pleco, and a black ghost knifefish. I'm so excited to be taking care of gourami again! :)

I purchased an opaline gourami and 1 blue. The opaline is bigger in size and won't stop chasing and (biting) the blue one. The "fight" started almost immediately. On the 3rd day I decided to isolate the opaline and still the opaline tries to get the blue one through its mesh separater. Maybe b-cuz the blue stays right in front opa and won't move away. Should I just let them FIGHT IT OUT CONSTANTLY?

is it still a powder blue gourami if it has redish verticle stripes?

Whoa! I was reading the comments and it seems most male gouramis are pretty aggresive!
My Dad's isn't like that at all! in fact our female Opaline and our white molly chase him around every so often! I guess my dad has a gentle giant? He really likes people and doesn't care when my little sister (who is seven and trying to figure out how I get him to swim to my finger) taps on the glass while the other fish freak! I think these guys are my absolute favorite. Gouramis are so gorgeous and people friendly and they're very calm, unlike the molly who is constantly rushing around the tank. From what I've seen they seem to like the sunlight a lot and they look beautiful when it hits their scales! I really want to get my own tank of them when I'm older!

I heard around that male Blue gouramis are really agresive with other fish.
One of these little girls solved that problem really quick!
When they are together, the opaline dominates but she won't pick on the blue to often because they get pretty big. The only problem I find with them is that they get really panicky and that's not all too good when you have young children in the house who like to tap the glass! Otherwise they seem like great fish. Maybe our opaline will get braver and stop being a scaredy-fish!
