If I can get a new, free tank, I may buy some as well. I've always loved gouramis, but I hate buying from pet stores, so I haven't had any in years. :( I recently got some other fish as gifts, so they're taking up the tank they'd go in, but I will be getting more in the future anyway because I need room for fry when I breed.
Also, the ones I got were from a petstore, so who knows how long they'll survive...I love them all the same, but it worries me, since so many petstore fish die so quickly.
Well I strongly believe that there are two males and two females. As I said before, the two other non neons look plump as a female would with eggs.
I have never bred them, I only have the one male in my community tank, but I have to say they are my favorite. I have a Dwarf Neon Gourami... Ryu. He's awesome. Anyways, just posting so I can follow lol
Heh, I do the same thing. I was always told it is rare to find females, but found over a dozen females in the tank at Walmart. My Walmart isn't too keen on keeping bettas, but they are REALLY on top of the whole "important" fish idea. It is horrible because the bettas get no attention and are only about 5-6 alive with about a little over a dozen.
I will definitely be offering to you guys here because I do know the hassle with trying to keep pet store fish alive.
Also I don't want to get people too excited yet because I don't exactly know how to breed them. All I know is that it is similar to bettas. Though since they are pretty fast fish, I can ekeep the water level to the top or just a little lower.
Also when if and when I do sell them, I will be selling them as a juvies (a bit smaller than that maybe) so shipping them would be easier and I wouldn't have to use bigger bags. Not too small though. I want to make sure they are able to survive through the whole process.
Lastly does anyone know anywhere I can find a really good article maybe? I started to research breeding them before I bought a new pair and bred my bettas, but stopped when that happened so I have to touch back on that.
