Before I found this site I wasn't sure on what fish I should get. My little brother has a Paradise fish, and I was going to get one as well. Now I have read this site and all the positive comments I know that I'm going to DEFINITELY get a betta ASAP!!!

a very beautiful fish. i had two pairs from an aquatics warehouse and thought the world of them. one month later both pairs had died. i only had the one tank at the time and the people at the aquatics warehouse gave me what i now see as bad advice. within two weeks of putting them into their new home they began mating. the males became rivals for the females attentions and began building bubble nests in the surface plants. once they finished they went after the females curled around them and the females released their eggs and the males their milt then the males collected the eggs in their mouths and placed them into the bubble nests. at this point they become aggressive, driving off other fish and protecting the nest with the eggs. they also hounded the females to death causing both to die suddenly from stress. i learned you should remove the females to another tank after mating. the males hounded each other when the females died and i lost both. a lesson learned the hard way. research before you buy.

Two of my Red Flame gouramis bullied my three angels and Red Flame and Powdered Blue gouramis, but less than a week later, after the others settled in, the two bullies stopped. The others fought back. The thing is no harm was ever done; it was all a show, at least it seemed to me. The interesting this is that these two never bothered the Pearl Gourami. Nowadays, I am more concerned about my greyish-blue angel because he has become the super bully of the bunch, and he nipped off 1/2 of one of the antennas of my golden angel's. The golden angel, on the other hand, bit off a portion of the bottom fin from that greyish-blue, perhaps to assert his rights. While the third angel is standoffish like an angel should. It's all beyond me. The curious thing is all my gouramis chase each other, including the angels, but no harm happens. It's more like a dance, and it's actually fun to watch. By two in the morning, practically all of the gouramis even cuddle up in their silk (plants) nests.

We have several Gourami in a 55Gal Tank. They seem to be friendly to the other fish but sometimes the golds go after one another. other then that they are fairly peaceful and beautiful fish, We have them paired with 2 Pleco, Mollies, and platies. they would make a nice addition to any aquarium

About one year ago I purchased two small bluegouramies. Up until three weeks ago they were pretty healthy. They grew very large; as I have them in a 55 gallon aquarium with two plecos spinocis(sorry about the spelling), a black one and a chocolaty chip one, a very large fancytailed goldfish, a medium-sized comet goldfish, and one large albino catfish. For some unknown reason one of the gouramies has lost its skin and fins. It died last night when I put it in a ten gallon medicine tank. Needless to say after reading the comments and information on this site, I will not be buying anymore gouramies.

So far I have had three gold gouramis and one blue gourami in a 20 gallon tank. The "originals" as I call them, are one female gold gourami and one male blue gourami. they get along just fine but I can never add a new fish to the tank! i always find them dead within 3 hours. i think it is the female doing this because i recently found the male belly up in the tank. Gee, i hope she isn't homocidal!

i have had a male blue gourami for a month now (3-4 in). he has harrassed to death three females (blues) and eaten my neons (12), yet i forgive him, he is so beautiful! i just have had to give him the run of the tank...funny thing is, now that the females are gone, he seems depressed (there is a man for you! Lol!) he is an interactive fish, zipping to the front of the tank whenever he sees me come close...i hope to one day find a female large enough to keep him in line! :) wonderful for anyone who finds the oscar to get too big.
