Labyrinth Fish & Filtration/Aeration
With bettas, we all know filtration/aeration is optional as long as you manually remove waste regularly but is this true with other labyrinth fish like gourami?
I have the opportunity to get my hands on a Giant Gourami (Osphronemus goramy) as well as a 240 gallon tank but I will have to wait for the tank to be delivered up here in a few months. I can house him in my 75 until then but I don't have a filter for it. As long as I watch the water quality (which won't be a huge issue at 2") and do WCs, can he live without a filter for a couple months? Also, how would I go about taking a gouarmi on a 13 hour car ride?
