Hi! I have 2 Opaline gouramies and one Blue Lavender 3 spot gouramie and they all get along with the rest of my fish. The guppies seem to be the ones to show them whose boss of the tank, and my angel just keeps to its self. I realy love my gouramies and I hope to get some different kinds soon.

I just added 2 gold gouramis to my tank consisting of some nasty barbs (3-banded apparently) that attack everything, a redtail shark, a large pleco, a parrotfish, and a blue crayfish (approx. 4 inches). A strange combination of fish I agree but they are all working well together. The barbs usually pick on anything in the tank or the crayfish gets a hold of a slow fish. The gouramis have lasted so far which I'm quite impressed with since everything else seems to mysteriously disappear...

I had about six Bettas which were very colorful. I kept them all in a separate tank, and they were very happy. I named them Redray, Bubbles, Ace, Gary, DaBlu and Ned. I had them for one and a half years until Ace, Gary, DaBlue and Ned died from age. I only have Redray and Bubbles now. Redray seems to be getting older. His nice red color is still bright but his nice white fins and tail are fading. Bubbles is doing good but getting weaker every week. The reason i named Bubbles, Bubbles was because he loves to make a big bubble nest in his small tank. Then after every two days, he would destroy it and make a new bubble nest. My six Betta stars seemed to be broken because of their death. Now im left with my two stars which i still treasure.

My betta, Dale Jr. was a beautiful bright orange. He was very aggressive, and every time someone would come in my room, I would have them stick the tip of their finger in the bowl and he would attack! I miss my little attack fish :(

My favorite fish for sure! I have 1 fire red male and 2 neon blue females with 3 rasboras, 3 cories, 2 honey gouramis, 4 rummy nose tetras, 2 snails, and a bristle nose pleco in a 20h tank. I would recommend you get 1 male and 2 females or at most 2 males. 1 male and 1 female may work but 3 males=BAD idea. I did this and 1 male was killed within a day!

We have a 29 gal tank with two blues and one gold. Crazy, but the mollies push these guys around. We have a few mollies and platys and they rule the tank...not the gouramis. The gold gourami is about 4.5 inches and is pushed around by everyone, including the crab. I have not seen anyone hurt anyone, although they will chase each other - but even that isn't aggressive. I think part of our success is that we have driftwood "caves", rock caves, floating plants, and several ground based plants. Some place for everyone to hide.

Haha, my neon blue dwarf gourami's name is Rey, and he's crazy.

He built a bubble nest about a week after I bought him, yet there's no female.

I've been searching for a female dwarf gourami of any sort at PETsMART, but they don't seem to have any.

Eventually, we'll find him a girlfriend.

I've been reading up on breeding, and it seems fairly easy enough...

I just love these fish.

I have one, yet I don't know if it's a male or female. She's still brand new, (i just call her a she...) and her name is Mina.

I assume that all Kissing Gourami's enjoy kissing the floor, the plants, or even the glass. They're adorable and great beginner fish, and long living ones, too.

They do tend to be rather aggressive towards African Cichlids. But are peaceful to all my other fish. Even though I don't own an African Cichlid, just a warning.

Mina also has some sort of attraction towards my powder blue dwarf gourami, Rey. She's always messing with his nest, and such, and kissing his side. It's really... weird. o.o;

I've had my blue gouarmi for a little over a year and a half. She's been an excellent fish, with a fine personality. She was a rescue from someone who was keeping her in a 2 gallon tank. Horrible! This type of fish is definitely a loner, and requires at least a 20 gallon tank. However, they are well worth the time and effort.

I Have 4 Dwarf Gouramis all male and they are al very beautiful fish, although they seem to have a-bit of a bullying problem. Every week or so the role of who would be the aggressive fish seemed to have changed; in the process, unfortunately scales have been lost and scars have been left. But i would recommend these fish for everyone, especially beginners. Also I believe the tank should be no smaller than 25-30 gallons.
