New Sparkling Gourami!
I stopped by the lfs today for some live bloodworms, and came home with a Sparkling Gourami. I've been thinking about getting them for months, but I've never seen them for sale. So while the owner's son was getting the bloodworms, I happened to glance into a tank and see a Sparkler! I was in a rush, so it's kinda funny that I would have noticed this tank out of the dozens in the store. I was so excited to find them! There was no label on the tank for the gouramis, so I asked him the price when he came back. He was pretty suprised when I pointed the little guy out - thought they had all sold a while back. The gouramis were mixed in with some tetras and other small schoolers, plus a female betta in a pretty large tank, so it was hard to spot him. He sold me one for $1.99, and gave the second to me free. Unfortunatly, the one went belly up on the ride home. :(
So I'm drip acclimating the little guy, and then he'll go in with my female betta in a 5 gallon, for the time being. He seemed to be getting along well with the betta and other gourami at the store, so I don't think I'll have any issues...
I'll post a pic of him once he's in the tank. Now I'll have to think of a name. :D
