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

i have three gourami, two gold and one pearl.a t first i had just one pearl with two guppies. every time the gourami chased guppies and ate tails until that two guppies died. after awhile i bought two gold. after this the pearl became calm, but my gold every time is chasing the female. try two or three gourami together otherwise they will chase other fish.

Hey Betta Lovers everywhere! I've recently bought my female and male betta at a pet store in San Diego, CA. Let me tell you...my female is bigger than any male betta that I've seen in many pet store in AZ. I don't know why, maybe the weather or something. Anyway, she was transported from CA to AZ a few weeks ago, and is still looking beautiful since the first time I bought her. Shes in a 10gal now with two Dragon fish, an algae eater, a frog, and a Dinosaur fish. I'll be adding a mate for her soon. He is on his way from Cali rite now. It will be my first time attempting to breed bettas. I love your website so much that I bookmarked it. Thanks for all the helpful info. And please keep on updating more helpful info in the future.

I HAVE 2 OPALINE GOURAMIS, 2 BLEEDING HEART TETRAS, 2 BLACK WIDOW TETRAS, AND AN ALGAE EATER IN A 29 GAL TANK. THEY ALL GET ALONG GREAT. I ADDED THE GOURAMIS ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AND NO INJURIES OR ANYTHING OF THAT SORT YET! HOPEFULLY ALL WORKS OUT GREAT. I LOVE THE GOURAMIS!!

Greetings: I have been a big fan of bettas since I was a child. At one point in time, I have kept more than forty bettas at the same time, and had a few successful spawns. In Thailand, I've seen these fish being fought, not for the sport, but for the honor and prestige of the owner, who tries to sell his bettas as having came from the best bloodlines and gene pools. Even the loosing fish will be taken home and be well cared for. But I like to point out, that, I have NEVER seen any fish fought to the death. Usually one would give up and swims away. The other would be declared the victor. Also, the only time that I've seen a male being attacked by a female,is when the female is much larger than the male. They can tell each other apart as males or females. Just to clarify a couple of things. THANKS!!!!

I have one of these with a bala shark, a red tailed shark, and a baby gumpy. i think that it's a male by the shape of his fins and he is pretty aggressive and he will chase the significantly larger bala shark around the tank. but he's my fatty!! i love him!
