The blue gourami is a very awesome fish. I kinda noticed as they get older, they change colours to show when they are happy and settled, and also when they are nervous and scared. They are pretty aggressive and will kill smaller fish (even they're own kind), so be careful. They are very smart and one of the best fish out there! Mine's already 3 years old! I love you "Fat B"!!

The opaline Gourami, I think is very aggressive because i had two of them in a long 20 gallon aquarium and the bigger one attacked the smaller one. So I had to move the smaller one into my 10 gallon aquarium, but it died. So I would suggest to anyone wanting to buy one of these fish, you won't be able to put smaller fish in.

I bought two "3 spot Gouramis" and mixed them with my goldfishes. But from what I've learned from this site, the "3 spot Gourami" is somewhat of a bully. Actually my two gouramis are always chasing each other until now, and I did see them harrassing the my precious goldfish. Now I'm considering purchasing another tank for these gouramis ... I don't want to take any chances.

I have four blue gourami's. When i bought them from the shop i asked for 2 male and 2 female but now they've grown bigger i've discovered that i have 3 males and 1 female! The males fight over the female and the female gets harrassed by all 3 males. Although they attack each other i have them in a community tanks with fish of similar and smaller sizes and they gourami's haven't caused them any bother...yet.

I personally think the blue gourami isn't a good community fish even when its small, they usually attack each other biting tails and fins. They fight each other almost to death, I had to seperate them. They are very good eaters though. they also chase around many other fish like tiger barbs and what not, but counld't catch them because they are not quite fast enough.
The blue gourami is very aggresive compared to all the facts on the web, but makes a collection towards the aquarium.

As a testament to how hardy the kissing gourani's are we moved ours cross country from Virginia to California in a 2 gallon tank that we set up every other night with a air stone and he's doing really well!

I have a 75 gal tank with a gold gourami, 12 tetras, couple of bottom feeders and one large angel. I added a blue gourami and all was fine until the blue gourami out grew the gold gourami. It is now a marathon around the tank with the blue gourami chasing the gold. I am going to have to remove the blue guy as he has become much too disruptive.

I own a 300 Oceanic Show Aquarium with a three inch red tail giant gourami, two nine inch silver arowanas, two four-five inch silver scats, four three-four inch parrot fish, and a six inch pleco. All are doing fine with each other and my key diet when feeding them are pellets and freezed dried bloodworms which they enjoy. My Ph is at 7.2, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, and can you believe no Nitrate 0. Temperature is at 82 F and four filtration I personally am using eight yes eight Ehiem canister filters as in line. I used Ehiem 2215 straight in line and than the Ehiem 2217 as well by using different bio medias to clear my water. My lighting system I went with six 10,000K, two actinic blues, and two 50/50 lighting system.

I may have the longest living betta. I have had this fish for 3 or 4 years and is the only betta I have owned. However, he has developed a large black tumor on his side which concerns me. He continues to eat and acts pretty normal.
