I had 2 male Opaline Gouramis that chased each other constantly. I found another home for one of them, and added a male Pearl Gourami, 2 Rainbow Fish (male and female), and 3 Harlequin Rasboras. Everyone seems to be getting along fine so far. The Opaline Gourami nipped at the tails of the Rainbow Fish at first, but seems to have settled down now. The 20 gallon tank now consists of 1 Pearl Gourami, 1 Opaline Gourami,2 Dwarf Gouramis, 7 Neon Tetras, 3 Pristella Tetras, 2 Rainbow Fish, and 3 Harlequin Rasboras. So far everything is going well.

These are my favorite fish! I have a 20 gallon tank with 2 Dwarf Gouarmis, 3 Pristella Tetras, and 6 Neon Tetras. It is a very peaceful combination. The Gouramis are quite tame, and come to the top of the tank looking for food every time I open the lid. Their orange and blue colors are quite striking, and they are very interesting to watch.

I have a 20 gallon aquarium with 2 dwarf gouramis, 3 Pristella Tetras, and 6 Neon Tetras. Everything was going along great until I went to a pet shop and the guy told me I could add 2 male Opaline Gouramis with no problem. BIG mistake! Although they are still young, one of them chases the other one constantly. They do not seem to bother any of the other fish, just each other. A friend of mine has an aquarium, and hopefully one of them is going to a new home SOON! The guy at the pet shop told me that Opaline Gouramis are not as aggresive as the Blue Gouramis, but I have since read that Opaline Gouramis are simply a color variation of the Blues. Hopefully no one else will make the same mistake that I did.

I have 2 honey gourami, sorry had.One was slightly bigger than the other,(both male) the larger seemed aggressive at times, usually feeding time.I found the smaller of the two upside down in one of the plants this morning! Was this the work of his tankmate?

I have a 20-gallon aquarium with 2 male Dwarf Gouramis,7 Neon Tetras, and 3 Pristella Tetras. They all seem to get along well, but the smaller Gourami harasses the bigger one.

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.
