Other fish: Guess what I finally got <3

I've been waiting for a while for today, I finally got my gourami! I have a 10g with 5 Glowlight Tetras and 6 Celestial Pearl Danios and I've been waiting since forever to find a tank upgrade. I finally found a 20g for a decent price! So I went out and got my gourami today. Our petstore has horrible selection, I wanted a Dwarf Honey but they had none left :( So I took this guy home. No way I could properly house the 4-10" gouramis they had. He's got great personality, settled in great with the other fish. I noticed they are more active now as well. So, yay! Tank should be here tomorrow or the next day.

So here he is, Ryu... Our new Dwarf Neon Gourami :)



And his tank for now...

The other fish are oddly bottom dwellers. The Glowlights are the most shy fish I have ever owned and my celestial danios are bottom dwellers by nature. They usually hide behind the boat, and all 11 are in there! Hence why I wanted a single centerpiece fish. Silly fishes.

Neat. he has the same pattern as the fish a local resturant has in their tank but theirs are olive colored with a blue? pattern and are quite big. I think they are in a 55 gallon

Only the dwarf types, they need 10g to themselves. I figure with the 20g he will have his own 10 galling lol Most regular gouramis are 4-10" adult size and semi aggressive, which need 20g to themselves. This guy will stay at 2" :)

He's already claimed the ship as his own. Last night he acted as if I was bothering him when I went in to check haha
