Gold Gouramis

we just bought 2 female gold gouramis. I have only ever had the dwarf gouramis (chocolate, honey) before. They aren't full grown yet, my estimate is about half grown. I was just looking for some info on them. Good things to include in their tank, diet, etc. Right now they are in a 30g planted aquarium with a variety of tropical fish, mostly tertras. There doesn't seem to be any aggresion towards each other or anyone else.

I have just added a nice gold gourami to my tank. It seems fine, peaceful even. I think having one gourami in a tank at a time (unless it's a really BIG tank) is the best option as they might become a little territorial, especially the one that was added first.

squiggles, we have fish profiles, second tab from the loeft in the blue bar across the top. Lots of info like you're looking for on the fish profiled. Gold Gourami are actually the same species as the Blue Gourami, so that info applies; there is a photo of a gold included too. You can click on the shaded name in posts to see that fish's profile, example Blue Gourami.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
