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.

In my heavily planted aquarium with plenty of driftwood, my waterscape resembles an underwater jungle. I bought my first 2 opaline gouramis recently since all I had in my 33long was tiny cherry barbs(10), Rummy noses(5), 2 von rios, Figure 8(1), Julie Corys(3), Albino Cats(2), and 1 pleco. everyone seems to get along fine. I have a pair, so the male one with the longer/straighter Dorsal likes to chase the female(short/rounder dorsal). one thing though, they are very sociable. they will peck at my hand when I'm in there messing with the Driftwoods and plants, and they loooovvee to eat! and S--t alot too! They love Krill, Hikari Bloodworms, and Optimum flakes, but if you don't want to spend alot on a expensive diet they will eat anything! I love their purple bluish color when they are in a chillin" mood and when the water parameters are pristine, very important! keep up with the water changes with these fish, like I said, They S--t ALOT!

Hello everyone. I have a Giant Gourami (natural bluish grey form) named Otis. He is a male at over 20 inches long with large head hump and fat lip. I bought him 11 years ago when he was about 2 inches long. I paid 12.00 for him. I have been into fish for over 27 years, this fish is by far the coolist fish I have ever had! He greets you when you approach the tank, when the stairway light comes on, he knows I'm coming down to my fish room, he is always there to greet me. If you see one of these guys in their relatively dull juvenile stage at your local fish store, BUY IT! You will not regret it. They are awesome! PEACE, Bryce in Nebraska
