I just love these fish.
I have one, yet I don't know if it's a male or female. She's still brand new, (i just call her a she...) and her name is Mina.
I assume that all Kissing Gourami's enjoy kissing the floor, the plants, or even the glass. They're adorable and great beginner fish, and long living ones, too.
They do tend to be rather aggressive towards African Cichlids. But are peaceful to all my other fish. Even though I don't own an African Cichlid, just a warning.
Mina also has some sort of attraction towards my powder blue dwarf gourami, Rey. She's always messing with his nest, and such, and kissing his side. It's really... weird. o.o;
i luv kissing gourami's there sooo cute, and romantic lol jk
My Kissing Gourami, Pinky has been with me 14 years! It is indeed a family pet! He is very picky about what he eats, and will remind you to feed him when it is meal time! Fish really do have there own personality!
I have a turquois kissing gourami named Mellis.
I have had him since I was 12- I am now 24!
He is probably 9-10 inches long!
I have 2 kissing Gouramis in a 30 Gallon Tank. I read that their live span is 5 years. My fish are 12 YEARS OLD!!!
Kissing Gouramis are very cool fish. I mean, they are so fun to look at, and laugh at because of their kissing action. I have even seen them kiss each other. Everyone should love these fish. I know I do.
i have a tank with a huge 7 incher and i have a very small 1 inch kissing gourami and they are the cutest guys i have.

I have thirty gallon aquarium in which I have many assorted fish and amongst those are two fairly small pink kissing gouramis. The two kissing gouramis are very peaceful and fun to watch. One likes to "kiss" or rather suck on every glass surface, heater, or pebble it sees while the other just appears to be kissing the water. I highly recommend this fish for larger peaceful aquariums.
Kissing Gourami are very fun but be sure to have a larger tank for them...50 gal should be great to reduce chances of aggression towards other fish.
These fish are really pretty and they are easy to mantain,but you might want to kep a good eye on them when you have baby fish[fry].
