LOL The other day I was sititng at my desk eating fish and I looked over and chatted with Blue. I almost got sick when I thought how wrong that seemed. I mean, I am sure the fish do not know what I was eating but all of a sudden it seemed they were all looking at me with this horrified look. I don't always eat at my desk, but often, sadly. I just have to think of veggies and fruit more when the fish are looking. ha ha How wrong is it that my favorite food is fish?

Don't, fish after all eat fish themselves ;)

More likely, they were wondering if you would share with them...

Yuck! You are likely right though. I started a whole thread awhile ago about how my fish always looked hungry. Maybe they did want some. That just seems so wrong but I guess they do not see things like we do. ha ha

I had to post a shot of Tux

I think he is a beautiful fish too. I wish I could take better pictures, the color is always so faded in my pictures. My camera doesn't pick up the motion and they are often a little blury. How frustrating. Thankfully we now have digital so I can take 500 pictures just to get one that is even alright. I need to clean my aquarium glass too, I think that ruined more then one shot. Drip spots on the glass. :(




Isn't he lovely? Can you see why I call him "Tux?"

I am loving your dwarf gourami! I really hope I can find a local breeder and get one for my tank.

Hey Inga! I took a video of the "Rack of Bones" Pearl Gourami! It's short, large screen it.
I don't know how anything so skinny can survive. lol But it eats every day. No one bothers it and when I feed the tank it knows to go off to a corner and feeds off the flake at the surface or around the plants rather than dead centre in the skirmish. (don't know if this is gonna work!)

Thanks, he is a great little fish. I hope you can find one as well. Do they have them in the fish stores near you?

I wonder why he is so skinny. Could he have some type of parasite? Very cute. I would be working to fatten him up as I tend to do that with most animals. I like to feed them. ha ha

Only one store does, but their stock is really shady. Everything looks sick and or stunted. I'm also more inclinded to buy them from a breeder in an attempt to avoid the dwarf gourami iridovirus. One would be just perfect for my 29 gal community.

Is that something that would show up right away? I have had mine for quite some time now and he is perfectly healthy. Lovely little fish, very brightly colored, as you can see. The only issue that I have seen is that he wants a relationship with my Opaline Gourami. Is that even possible? ha ha Poor little guy. He has been showing off his bubble blowing skills in the Pennwort but she swims by and ignores him. ha ha
