We have had a giant Gourami for 2 years now and he has become very much part of the family. His name Sashimi and is now 14inches long. We just got him a 150 gallon tank and hopefully this will be his last move. Sashimi is just like a dog and goes crazy soon as he see's or hear's the family. He doesnt' like other fish so he is alone, he also gets stress marks on his body if we are away on vacation so you need a fish sitter (They really need attention)
Sashimi loves pea's and blood worms for those of you thinking of getting this kind of fish be ready as they grow fast and require lots of attention.

HI. LIVING IN AUSTRALIA IT WAS QUITE A CHALENGE AQUIRING ONE OF THESE BEAUTIFULL FISH AND ONCE YOU DO FIND ONE IT WOULD BE ABOUT A FOOT LONG AND CARRY A $400 + PRICE TAG. BUT AFTER 8 MONTHS OF SEARCHING I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON A 8cm PINK SPECIMEN. I have him in a 400 LITRE TANK WITH HUGO MY COMMON PLECO THAT I HAVE HAD SINCE A TINY 6CM HE IS NOW A FOOT LONG MONSTER. I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE GOURAMI AND LOOK FORWARD TO BUYING HIM A BIGGER TANK AS HE TURNS INTO A MONSTER.
REGARDS MICAHEL

I have 2 Gold Gouramis in a tank with 2 Angelfish and a Zebra Pleco and they all do just fine together. Both of my Gouramis came from the same tank and are about 3-4 inches long and were very healthy when we bought them and they still are. I must say that this fish is rather easy to take care of, but they are VERY skiddish, even more so than the Angels. Also if you have not one of these fish already, and you plan to buy one, be cautious on the first few weeks because they get so much more stressed out than the other fish upon new tank entry.

my betta fish sam was a dark red-blue. he would always (when i wasn't looking) make a face and pull out the fin under his neck, but i would catch him everytime he did it. he was so adorable, i would sit there for four hours and watch him do it

I have had a gourami tank for three years now. I have a gold gourami and two blue gouramis. All three are about 5 inches in length and very vibrant in colors. Together, they are very passive fish, though they do have their set territories in my 55Gal tank. Originally, I began with one gourami and found that it DID pick on the other fish, but when kept in a community of odd numbers (3 or more) the three spot gourami family does just fine. This is a semi-aggressive fish by all means, as they do have their set zones in the tank and when summer time comes around the males have little challenges where their colors tend to darken and they 'feel' each other and will charge at one another quite fiercely. I've never had any injuries, but can imagine that it is very possible with such strong fish.

Beautiful and people friendly, my gouramis will try and feel your fingers if you put them next to the glass or while I am cleaning the tank. They have also felt over the other fish but never harmed any of them. Keep in mind I have a purely smi-aggressive tank however and everyone can hold their own. All fish have one rule... If it fits in my mouth I'll eat it.

I took over caring duties for a friend of mines Blue Gourami that he named Guami. He is in a 26 Gal. Bow front along with two YoYo loaches, eight neon black tetras, eight glo-lite tetras and for a little while six zebra danios. He at first had a problem with being in the tank, attacking everyone in it, but I took all the fish out, re-arranged all of the plants and drift wood and such, and put him in last. He leaves everyone alone now and just hangs out in the top right corner of the tank while I am watching him, but if I sit down across the room he swims around the plants and just feels everything up. He jumps like crazy when I walk by, but that has gotten better since he has gotten to know me. Very nice fish, and very beautiful. I am considering starting a Gourami tank with three or four pairs of these guys in it.

i recently bought a beautiful neon dwarf gourami. i bought him in hopes that he would become my almost 4 year old powder blue (what i believe is a female)gourami's new best friend, after her friend moosache died. well, they didnt hit it off, but they didnt rip each other to shreds either. I think Fire Works(the male) respects Danny's(the female) high status in the little group of fish that i own. Recently however, ive noticed that fire works and danny are either challenging each other, or they are in love, because FW is building what i beleive to be a bubble nest. well, whatevers happening, alls fair in love and war.

My female, Star, flips if I put my finger on the top of her tank. She also changes her shade of color every day. My male, DJ, always is looking at her. I think it is so cute!
