This little gourami (in it’s different colour forms) is adored by aquarists across the world. A member of the Anabantoids, with the ability to breath atmospheric oxygen as well as dissolved oxygen.

This little Gourami is fairly durable and has long been recommended as a good choice for community tanks and beginners. It is excellent for the smaller aquarium as it is peaceful with everybody and almost shy. As long as the aquarium is properly set-up and maintained, this fish will thrive.

Tanks Mates and Compatibility – Non-threatening shoals of small, peaceful cyprinids such as the Harlequin Trigonostigma heteromorpha, many rasboras and some barbs therefore make excellent companions in the more modest set-up. Loaches including Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki or any of the various Pangio species are also good choices. Some of the currently popular freshwater shrimps such as the cherry shrimp Neocaridina denticulata can also work well in a planted tank. If geography is not an issue, many of the commonly available tetras, catfish (Corydoras and Otocinclus are particularly suitable) and smaller rainbowfish could also be added.
