My pink giant gourami was only about 4 inches when I first bought it. After about 5 months, it grew to about 12 inches! It eats a lot and grows real fast. When it is hungry, it will keep begging for food whenever I approach it. But after a heavy meal it will become quite nervous and hides whenever I come close to it. Quite an interesting fish. It will swallow whatever that can fit into its mouth. Now that it is big enough, whenever I place my finger onto the tank glass, it will start attacking it by knocking its mouth against the tank glass!

I have a red male betta and he is one of the most beautiful fishes I have ever seen. I used to have a male with a blue body and his fins were different colors in different lights. My red one is very social around strange people, never hides, looks and wacthes things alot, and sleeps alot!

I have 8 pink lady gouramis in a 300 gallon tank, i bought them about 5 months ago when they were about 4 inches long. now they are all about 12 inches. they tend to get along very well. they are very cool looking all together. on the other hand i also have 3 red tails and 2 white gouramis in a 240 gallon tank. they are very aggressive and have to be separated all the time. for some reason the pink ladys seem to be the peaceful and newest of the spieces.

I have two powder blue dwarf gouramis and was keeping both in a planted 25 gallon tank along with 2 otos and 6 panda cories. The larger of the two (both male) became more and more aggressive toward the other (never the other species) until it was necessary for me to move the victim to a different tank. Unfortunate as the two really had some interesting interaction before the aggression. An absolutely lovely fish.

I have had bad luck with fish, but bettas are very hardy. Also they are not messy like goldfish. They have a lot of personality, (for a fish) and mine will even take food from my fingertips. I have had three--two females and a male. Now I am down to one. My male died of old age, and I lost a female in a cat related tragedy. If you look around you can get some very pretty females--mine is brilliant red. She lives in a five-gallon tank with a ghost shrimp. (Which by the way she gets along with fine once the novelty of "something-new-to-follow-around" wore off.) Ivan is quite right, just because they can live in a small container does not mean they should, they should have at least a gallon. In all these are great fish, definitely one of my favorites!

I have two of these in my tank and they are very beautiful and graceful. One does seem to pick on the other but there doesnt seem to be undue stress on the part of the "victim" as it doesnt continuously hide. They get on well with other fish.
I have:
6 Neon Tetras
6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows
3 Golden Barbs
2 Dwarf Gouramis
4 Corydoras Panda
3 Otocinclus Affinis
1 Siamese Algae Eater
2 Sunrise Mollies

They seem to make for a succesful community aquarium,

Actually, I have 2 male bettas and I either put a mirror next to their tanks or set their tanks next to each other. I have read on many different web sites that it is good for the betta to have company, even if it is just a mirror. But, my bettas are in a little tank, less that half gallon, and they have lived for a little over a year now. I have one betta, purple and yellow, that I named Spirit and the other ones name is Snuggles. I just thought that Snuggles was a cute name so I named him that. I keep my bettas by them selves, with no other fish or snail in the tank. It is though, ideal to have a small snail in the tank with your betta to keep the tank clean. Some of you say that bettas are the best pets to have and I think that is 100% true. They are so easy to take care of! DO NOT PUT TWO MALES IN THE SAME TANK UNLESS YOU HAVE A DIVIDER BETWEEN THEM! Females you can put together. And Wal-Mart, finally, is starting to carry larger cups for their bettas. I have heard that a male and a female betta should not be put together until they are ready to be bred. The male will attack the females, other males, and the baby fish (fry). And again, a betta is the best starters fish.
