Looks just like one ofmy two dwarf cobalt gouramis which i'm assuming is just another name for the blue dwarf / powder blue dwarf etc)

I have one that looks just like that one, and one that is a bit smaller than the other and doesn't have the red tinge to the fins or the red stripes. Still quite blue though. Do i have a male and a female?

P.S sorry to barge in with my questions on your thread Frenzy, but i've been wondering for ages what sex mine are, but can't get a decent photo! Nice to find a decent photographer with identical fish! Seriously, they could be twins, even down to the faint red stripes.

Lovely fish ain't they, mine are really friendly and playful.

There are several strains of dwarf gouramis. Males are quite colorful whereas females are rather plain. You don't see females often as people tend to demand more on the males owing to their bright coloration.

Again, the picture posted by the OP is strictly a male.
