I just recently got my first betta fish..it is so cool! Every time i come into the room and put on my light it swims around all fast and gets really excited. Once i got him home he was eventually transfered into a big fish bowl and was very excited and would swim non-stop around the bowl. I would recommend this fish to anyone.

I recently bought a pair of pearl gouramis. They hid behind the plants for the first few days. I decided to turn down the bubbles in my internal filter until there was almost no surface ripples. Immediately, they started to explore the tank and swimming with my bala shark and barbs. They are great fun to watch.

I have a 45 gallon tank with 4 danios, 2 tiger barbs, 6 tetra, 1 angel, 1 blue gourami, 2 plecostomas, and 2 fiddler crabs. they live quite happily except when i added a dwarf flame gourami. the big blue bully took care of him but other wise all is well.

Im not familiar with this red-flame type, but raised two lots of honey gouramis a couple decades ago. The males were awesome looking, with an indigo-blue colored throat patch that would display in courtship, with a deep red-gold tint to their fins. When startled (which was often, they ARE cowards!) their entire coloration would pale out to a pale yellow.

i have a 125 litre tank with quite a mixture of community fish. i added 2 opaline gouramis which constantly chased each other, then one died from an internal bacterial infection. the one that was left was quite quiet until i added 2 boesmani rainbow fish which he proceeded to bully and finally killed. i think these fish need to be in a small shoal of about 4, this is the only way any of the other fish can live peacefully!!

I have been playing musical tanks with my fish to find the right combinations. I have 8 neon tetras, 6 black skirt tetras, a black phantom tetra, 4 platies, 5 mollies (plus one baby that hid when I got rid of the rest), a betta, and a blue gourami. In addition I sort of breed snails. Knowing I have to watch what I put the gourami with is why I am playing musical tanks. He gets along fine with the mollies and the platies, but chases the tetras. I am leery of putting the betta and gourami together. So I had the gourami with the platies and all the snails in one tank. But I just found out that the gourami nips at my snails tentacles, and I just can not have that. So now he is in with no snails, the 4 platies and my neons. Seems to do ok with the neons because if he gets close to them, they are faster and go to the other side of the tank. As he gets bigger, I will be taking all the small fish out of his tank. But beautiful fish, and I can not wait till he is full grown :)

We have a Kissing Gourami that we have had for 16 years, he likes to be alone from other fish and recognizes us on sight. He gets mad and splashes if we do not feed him immediately. He about 5-6 inches long and we purchased him for our daughter when she was 15, she is now 31. He has been very enjoyable.

I have 2 blue gouramis 4 inches long, they are agressive and have to be kept seperate from my other aquarium. I believe i have a male and female breeding pair from the difference in dorsal fins and coloration. they do a wierd dance when together that i can only describe as courtship. so far no egg bubbles.
