Sexing this Gourami
Could anyone tell me if this is a female or male?
Also, the store had it labeled as a Blue Gourami. Is this correct? Does that mean it is a Dwarf? I am a bit unsure of it's exact breed.
I'm pretty sure female gouramis are very pale, a browny-silver colour with not much else. Also, males have pointed dorsals and female rounded, from what I've been told. So I'd say yours is a male. Again, this is just what I've been told in the past ;)
That's a male dwarf gourami, no more, no less.;) As for females, they are simply drab or silvery in color.
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
coming from a pet store employee I would have to agree with male on this one. It is definitely a dwarf gourami..a true blue gourami looks different. It almost looks like a powdered blue dwarf gourami but it has some orange striping of a regular dwarf gourami. Nevertheless, the majority of dwarf gouramis sold in stores are males because frankly, they are a lot prettier than the females
