I feel the need to rave about my new sparkling gouramis, and ask, out of plain curiosity, about others' experiences with them.
First of all, I take to take my dear betta out of the 5.5 gallon. He ate my ghost shrimp on a fasting day, which, okay, I could understand. But about a week ago, he started flaring and chasing my oto cat. I tried moving decor around in my tank, and reintroducing the betta, but eh, no peace. So I moved my betta to a one gallon until I can find at least a 2 gallon for him.
So that left me with one oto in a 5.5 gallon. Thought about adding a few more, but out of my LFSs, only Petsmart carries otocinclus catfish; and I'm sorry, but after seeing this Petsmart's tanks, I'm not too keen on buying from them. So I got a pair of sparkling gouramis from a different store, an amazing, individually owned and operated place. And I have to say, they're about the cutest fish ever. Not even two cms, and they're so expressive!
I was wondering about sexing these guys. I know there aren't any physical clues as to which gender. Anything behavioral, though?
Any pointers on care? I've done some research, but it's always good to read personal experience.
