Breeding Dwarf Gouramis

Hello everyone! I was just wondering if anyone here has every successfully or attempted to breed Dwarf Gouramis?

If someone knows a good article to read about breeding them possibly? I would love to attempt it once I have all the right information and materials.

I saw that they blow bubblenests just like bettas so they wouldn't be too different from the betta species.

What are your thoughts on this?

The results are in!

I've ever tried but failed because there are too much males in the tank and they fight each other for a mate.But i did't breed them anymore because they all died.

So you have successfully bred them and then failed to keep them or the whole spawn was a fail?

I have heard that females are quite rare so breeding is as well, rare. You could try to get a female, check Aquabid if you do.

Yeah. My LPS had a male and female. I dont know if they have them now. Female bettas were supposed to be 'rare' in pet stores as nd I can go to my LPS and they will have a couple females.


Though I guess AB should have some nice ones. Thanks for the input kfryman.

At all of my local pet stores that have fish, they never have females. I have also heart that females are a whole lot harder to get. I would definitely get her if you are gonna be breeding. Saves the cost on shipping.

Very true. Also I saw that just like bettas some females can be bland and not as colorful as males. When I was researching breeding I also read that female bettas were rare in stores as well, but injustice to be safe I would like to get one.

Also I can order from that store since it is a small town and I know the owner.

I think my little male is hopeful that he can breed with my Opaline Gourami. He is up blowing bubbles like crazy. She will of course ignore him. ha ha Can't blame a guy for trying though.

Well I think I might be lucky enough to have two pairs. I was reading an article that says that females tend to be bland in color and have a thicker stomach. Which both of my females have. I will definitely be posting pictures and doing quite a bit of researching before attempting to breed them.
