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

    No, then it's a Red Dwarf Gourami.

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!

When I was five I got my first pet- a betta fish, and I named him Flower (I was five, he was pinkish-red, and I thought he was a girl, alright?!). I had him for a year but then he died. Then I got another and named him Night. (Now, I'm in first grade.) Night lasted three years and he died on the last day of school in third grade. Then, I got another, in fourth grade, and named him Baseball and another a few weeks later to keep in school as our class pet who I named Fish. Baseball died a year later and a few months later, Fish. Then, I got another one and named him Fizzlepop. Fizzlepop is doing fine and I am in seventh grade now. (I'm 12)He also has a new 'friend' because last week I won a goldfish at the fair. I love betta fish!

I have three gouramies that were given to me, a blue and 2 orange. Also a tetra. One of the orange gouramies keeps biting the back fins of all the other fish, he is a real bully. Actually I think it is female. It follows and pushes around the others. I have heard these fish are peaceful. I have decided to put the aggressive one in a separate tank. Other than that, they are great fish and easy to take care of.

I just got 1 gold gourami and 1 holy gourami and they are getting bit by my tiger botias and the beotias keep scaring them. They are really nice fish and I'm thinking of getting an opaline gourami because they are really nice fish and they get to 6 inches. My fish are in a 10 gallon right now but in a month they will be moved to a 55 gallon tank with 110 gallons of filtration, and I'm also getting id sharks. I also have 1 common pleco and 1 high fin butterfly pleco and I'm geting another big common pleco when I get my 55 gallon tank. If my id sharks grow over 1 ft in less then 1 year im putting them in a 125 gallon tank that my bro has.

Bought two of these fish. For the first two weeks one would chase and nudge the other around the tank non stop. I thought I would have to end up returning him but after some time he settled down and the two of them got along great. Unfortunately one of them just died the other day and the remaining Opaline looks devastated and lonely. After I removed the dead fish the other kept frantically searching every inch of the tank looking for his buddy... makes me so sad!

Hi, I've had a giant for about 30 months now. It eats anything I throw into the tank for him; veg, banana, pellets, blood worms and even cooked rice.

Have you heard these fish "talking"!... I keep a pair of these fish in a large fish bowl. At night when the room is quiet, you can hear them make all kinds of noises. You can also hear them chew their food when you feed them! Since I got them last year, they have been my favorite fish.
