Why do PETCO and PETSMART keep this fish in small cups? Isnt that bad for the poor fish? But agin males WILL fight, and there is not a lot of space in the store.
BUT, when YOU buy it keep it in a 1 gallon + container.
In a one gallon container their lifespan is 3-7 months, in a cup (just like in PETCO) its around 4-6 weeks, and in a 5 gallon or bigger aquarium thay can really display their fins and colors, and can live up to 3-4 YEARS!

Very peaceful and good for community tanks. Excellent for small aquariums starting from 10 gallons. They will not bother other fish, sometimes males might get territorial, and only sometimes they become fin nippers and attck fishes like angels and bettas. Keep 2 females and one male, thats the best combo i have found.

I have two male golds, one never stops charging at the other, this gone on since i got them (about six months ago) i have noticed lately that the one been chased has a bloody lump on top of his head. I have decided to seperate them as im sure it will lead to his death.

I have to agree. My red flame gourami is extremely aggressive. In the same tank I have plecos a few platy and an opaline gourami. I had read that this is a good community fish but not at all.

The Blue or also three-spot gourami is a brilliant fish.
I currently kept a small male in a ten gallon with
two corydoras catfish, one butterfly pleco and one
common pleco who will be moved to a fifty five gallon
pretty soon. My gourami gets along pretty well with
the other fish but sometimes he does get a little nippy,
reminding the corydoras that he is the ruler. :) ha! ha!
A very beautiful, hardy, interesting fish that fish
keepers should try out after they have got the hang of
the hobby.

I own eleven betta fish. They are truely my favorite
fish. Bettas are very responsive to people.
and sometimes can be tamed. Please dont keep them
in one of those side-by-side containers or anything
smaller then half a gallon. Its rather cruel and even
though people suggest it, the betta will suffer and not
live as long.

Hello, Bettas are probably my favorent fish.
I keep mine in large almost two gallon fish bowls which
recieve regular water changes. Bettas are very interesting
fish, each has its own personality. PLEASE never keep
bettas in anything less then half a gallon! Its a cruel
pratice though lots of people do it. Of course the best
home for a betta would truely be in a actual fish tank.
Ideal would be a five to ten gallon. Dont keep any fin
nippers with this species! :)
Marine.

I have a female gold in a tank w/ a female opaline. I also had another female gold before the opaline. The other gold died overnight (I THOUGHT from stress) and now Im noticing that the gold is charging the opaline. At first the opaline was hiding all the time. Now, she comes out, and flees when the gold charges. I had read that the females would be less aggressive towards each other, if at all. Now, Im concerned for my opaline. I have a 10 gal. tank w/ 3 platys, 2 gobies, one juvenile white lyretail molly, and a catfish. I would not put more than one gourami in a 10 gal. tank at a time.

this is one of my favourite fish but do not keep with aggressive fish or the will get bullied, best to keep with other smaller fish and other dwarf gourami but not flame gourami as they are too aggressive.
