I have had my pearl gourami for quite a while and i think it is a great fish. It is always waiting for food and loves hanging around with my angel fish,I really engoy waching him as he is an interesting fish.
No fish has ever attacked my one-and-only Pearl since the first day. He was shy at first, probably for four days. Now, he is all over my 60 gal tank frolicking with the rest, and always one of the first in line for food. He had a strange quality about him at first, until I got used to looking at him. He is not my favorite fish, however. I love my Red Flames and Powdered Blues, especially when they do their pseudo-wardance.
I love my pearl gourami!
I recently bought a pair of pearl gouramis. They hid behind the plants for the first few days. I decided to turn down the bubbles in my internal filter until there was almost no surface ripples. Immediately, they started to explore the tank and swimming with my bala shark and barbs. They are great fun to watch.
i just added a pearl to my 180 litre tank today, it is fitting in well with my 2 angels and silvershark, i plan to add 2 bristle noses 2 bronze catfish, a kissing gourami and a large assortment of tetras and barbs
i only recently bought a female and male pearl gourami, but already they are one my most active and peaceful fish in my 180 litre tank. theyre kept with a rope fish, a red-finned shark, 10 columbia, 95 tetras and about 4 danios (the rope fish ate the other danios). they both get along great with all the inhabitants and an absolute bargain of a fish.
My male pearl is a little territorial and has a history of being a bully, but I think it is mainly because he doesnt have bigger fish around to keep him in line. I have a 15gal tank with two pearls (male and female), a female gold molly, and two dwarf african frogs. It is a pretty peaceful tank *that is until the male decides that it is time to breed*
I have had tanks from 20 - 40+ gallons and tall to long. Pearls are my favorite for sure. I have come across an aggessive male or two, but they are the exception not the rule. Likewise, I have seen some quite shy. Typically, they are great community fish and real beauties. Feed them some worms occasionally and watch their colors come to life.
Pardon my french, these fish are not all they are made out to be!!!! Sure, they are pretty, but attitude? ARG!!! These fish are not ALL peaceful and serene, I actually bought a quite violent and tempermental one, which happened to kill a guppy of mine, and to this day has been after my platies. I love these fish, they are beautiful, but the one i ended up with was ANYTHING but timid.
I just added a male Pearl Gourami to my 20 gallon tank. He is a beautiful fish and my current favorite. The tank includes 1 Opaline Gourami, 2 Dwarf Gouramis, 2 Rainbow Fish, 7 Neon Tetras, 3 Harlequin Rasboras, and 3 Pristella Tetras. So far it is a very peaceful and colorful tank. I could sit and watch them for hours!
