I don't know how long it takes to manifest. I remember Byron saying that if you did want to buy dwarf gourami they should be quarantined for around 6 months to ensure that it is iridovirus-free. Aquarium Fish: Fish Viral Disease This article has a bit more on the virus as well as koi herpes virus.

I think your little guy is barking up the wrong tree with your opaline gourami. But at least it makes for some cute "hey look at me!" pictures. He looks like he's really showing off for her.

He sure is. LOL Poor little thing. He has been in this tank for well over 6 months so... I guess he is fine.

Wouldn't it be something if there was successful spawn. They wouldn't be dwarfs, they wouldn't be full size, they would be miniature Gourami ha ha

If you had a successful spawn, those would be some funny looking babies, but I'd gladly take one in! Your little dwarf gourami would be so proud of himself. I kinda picture him as a nerd in high school who asked the prettiest girl to prom and she said yes.

Ha Ha, Yeah that is exactly how he is. I wish I had today on video. He was swimming around showing off and she was ignoring him as usual. All of a sudden he turn around and swims hear her and she flips her tail and practically knocks him over. I was laughing so hard at the poor little guy. ha ha I don't want him to feel bad so I always tell him how handsome he is.
