I bought an orange gourami and then I bought a blue one. The orange one was acting different to the new fish that I had got. The orange one was nipping at the blue one's tail. It also was showing itself diagonal to the blue one. I don't know if they were both males or the orange one was a female and the blue one is the female but I guess they were both males. So I took the blue one back to petsmart. I want to get a gourami that is blue but I am afraid it will not fit in with the orange gourami.

I recently bought two Dwarf Flame Gouarmis, and they are both doing exceptionally well. One thing I have noticed, though, is that Oscar (one of my fish) has been nippy and mean to my second gouarmi, Ince. They are both males, and I'm not sure why they are having this issue. They both get quite enough food, and they have more then enough space. Right now they are the only fish living in my ten gallon aquarium.

I would recommend these fish to anyone who has the space for these fish. They are beautiful additions to any aquarium.

Yes the female builds a bubble- debris nest. I have two in a 75 gallon tank they are the only two things in the tank and they have both built nests at either end of the tank which left me questioning their sex... but they are most definitely both female.

My brother has 2 of these guys in our comunity tank and they are not aggressive towards our other fish, despite their being the largest fish in the tank.

I wonder if the female neon gouramies build nests with bubbles.

I have lots of gouramis but the dwarf gouramis (flame), have females that I call silver ladies. I'm Worried about 1 of them, she has become small mouthed and is feeding less and seems to be sulking. I am wondering what is wrong and how do I sort it.

I have had 2 flame dwarf gouramis for a month now and they have really improved the quality of the tank. I had got these gouramis to add more color to my aquarium. I thought I was adding only red to my tank when I bought them but I soon found out I was also adding blue. I can only see the blue part of their dorsal fin when it is up. It is amazing how such a small part of the fish can add so much color to the tank. I almost would describe it as disappointing when they put their dorsal fins down. In addition they interact very peacefully with my 12 other species of fish. They manage to get enough food from each feeding without making it harder for other fish to get food. The gouramis do go into hiding often but do not stay very long. Anyone who wants to add color to their freshwater community aquarium should get flame dwarf gouramis.
