Talking Gourami Thread!

I don't know if we have one of these or not, but I thought I might as well make one I figured this could be a place for new and old owners alike to ask questions and talk and share pics!

I only have one Gourami, her name is Soleil and she's a Golden Gourami. She's camera shy, but loves to boss around her tankmates, sometimes a little too much.

I don't own a gourami, but I have always wondered...what are they like?

Bipolar XD Mine is either happy and confident or angry and shy. She picked on the Cories so much that I had to rehome them, but she loves the Barbs... She also huge. She's a pretty great fish and usually isn't too hard to catch when need be; an all around good fish, and I would suggest one to anyone with the space

I really like liquorice gourami. They are very similar in care/appearance/behaviour to my wild bettas and I did used to own a trio of them in the past.

Unfortunately, the strains I like seem to be non-existent in Australia. The ones I had were very lovely fish. The only reason I sold them on was that I needed the room for my wilds and they were three males rather than a breeding pair.

This was my three when I had them.

Here's Garry he's a Powder Blue Dwarf Gourami and he see's himself as the king of the tank.

I'm new to the world of fish keeping and the first fish I got were a male and female dwarf gourami and a blue gourami of unknown gender. Someone told me that they would tear one another apart but they all seem to get along pretty well. Once in a while the male dwarf goes after the female but the tank is well planted and has a lot of hides so she just gives him his space and all is well. I think I'd like to add another female dwarf if I happen across one because I've read that this will ease up on spousal abuse but for the time being I don't think that anyone is really suffering.

Who else has slurping gourami?! I love the sounds they make when they gobble their food.

LBF, those licorice gouramis are stunners!

My local pet shop has started selling chocolates.

Great fish, guys! They're all so pretty! And I wouldn't keep them together, Zombieaddict, but mainly because I'm already overstocked in the tank! I've heard both sides of the story, and am still not sure which is true.

Yesterday I caught Red, my male dwarf, using a piece of java moss wrapped around his water sprite like a tow line to drag the sprite to a different corner of the tank. Afterwards, he started gathering pieces off the moss strings from around the tank so he could put them up in the sprite where he wanted them. It was too funny to watch.
