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.

YOU HAVE TO OWN A BETTA TO KNOW WHAT A WONDERFUL PET THEY ARE. THEY ASK FOR VERY LITTLE - A GLASS BOWL, CLEAN WATER AND A PELLET OR TWO. THIS ELEGANT LITTLE FISH IS A TREASURE!

I had 3 powder blue dwarf gouramis originally in my 26-gallon tank with 6 neon tetras and 1 albino pleco. I wanted to put in females, too, but my local fish store told me that their supplier euthanizes all the females and therefore I can't get them. Anyway, there definitely was a "nipping" order among the three. One dominant "alpha" gourami is of a feisty character and comes up to the front and top of the tank whenever I come in the room. He even lets me "pet" him!!!- LOL :D Even though he's a bully, I like him a lot for his big personality in a little body. The other two, less dominant ones, were eventually moved to different tanks because they just didn't look nearly as good as the bully one. One of them is doing fine in a 36-gallon community tank. He seems very content and happy. The third one, unfortunately, came down with a weird internal illness and I had to euthanize him. Such a shame since these are such beautiful fish.

Hi. I have 2 blue gouramis (both about 3 inches), 6 neon tetras, 1 powder blue dwarf gourami (2 inches)and 1 albino plecostomus (only 2 inches) in a 26-gallon tank. I see the male blue gourami chasing the female a lot, but my tank is heavily planted with plastic plants, so she is fine with no torn fins or visible injuries. The blue gourami male leaves all the other fish alone, but chases my feisty dwarf gourami occasionally. The blue gouramis love blanched spinatch leaves and peas (without skin) I give them. I have only had the blue gouramis for over a week now, but the female started looking plump and the male's color has intensified. I also see him trying to blow bubbles at the surface of the water. I am thinkng about getting the tank(water level, temperature, floating plants, etc.) ready for possible spawning. :) I love these fish!

we got 2 red flame honey gouramis with bunch of different kinds of fish. oh my god, they are pretty strong. Only these gouramis survived while all the rest of fish have died. They are aggressive, too, but we would like to call them "active." They are huge glutons, too. We got two corys afterwards, but these gouramis eat everything whenever we feed them, so those poor corys are starving! But we love our gouramis, they are so cute, they swim around between rocks and plants, any small cracks they found. They seem to be very curious creatures, and they are never afraid of us, rather like us, while our corys get frightened when we approach to a tank. omg poor corys~

Hi, I've had betas for many years now and the longest living one died two months ago, he was 5 years old and that is not counting how old he was when I got him. I recently bought what seems to be a baby because he is the smallest guys I have ever seen. He is absolutely gorgeous, belly is dark blue and the rest of him is burgandy. He is only eatig 1 pellet 3 times per day. I tried 2 pellets but he just ignores it. I have him in a very large fish bowl and that seems so big for him. I just love having him around.

After reading up everything on the net i got my boy, Cian- blue with red fins. i agree that they have such great personalites and do interact with their owners! im so attached to this boy and have just got him a g/f (in a community tank) who im getting to know. she is very sweet too. Cian was very fussy with his food, only really eating flakes! finally he will eat white worms happily. i am getting a red male this weekend who is going to be his mate (in a separate tank of course). be good to see their different personalites shine. i dont think i will ever get any other fish other than a siamese fighter from now on!

I have a large blue gourami male. I have put two Plecostomus in with him and both Plecostomus have disappeared without a trace. I noticed him nipping at the Plecostomus, then a week later there was no trace of the Plecostomus. My husband did not believe that he ate the Plecostomus, so he bought another and put it into the tank.
2 weeks later that one disappeared without a trace. We are thinking of moving the gourmi to smaller tank and getting other fish to put into the larger tank.

I have a 40 gallon aquarium with a 4 1/2 inch Bala Shark that killed every fish I ever put in there. When I saw the Gold Gouramis and learned that they are slightly agressive, I bought four of them hoping they would hold their own with the shark. They all get along just fine with each other. I'm not sure if it's because the shark was lonely (he was alone for over a year due to his homicidal tendencies)or if the Golds stand up to him!
