HUH??? Welsh, I used to raise angels & I used a 20 gal. high for a breeding pair. I KNOW a pair doesn't need 55 gallons - at least not in my opinion and experience.

I honestly believe a pair would do FANTASTIC in a 35 gal., but that's just me.

Dwarf Gouramis are prone to disease and if you get one which never gets Dwarf Gourami Disease then you are lucky.

In my experience, they are very sickly and sensitive fish, but some lucky people do have success with them.

Have to agree. Personally, I have never had any luck with them. I have, however, had good experience with Honey Gouramis.
