Dwarf Gouramis will readily spawn if water conditions are similar to the conditions during spawning season. To achieve this the water level in the tank should be lowered to about 8" and the water temperature should be raised to about 80 F. Make sure the water surface is still and there are floating plants for the male to build a bubble nest in.

Once the bubble nest has been built the male and female will spawn then the male will place the eggs in the nest to be guarded. The female should be removed at this point.

The eggs will hatch after about 24 hours and the fry are free swimming about 24 hours after hatching. The male should be removed at this point because he will eat the fry. Feed the fry infusoria, baby brine shrimp and later, pulverized flakes.

Thanks I am now getting females. And I'll give them some brine shrimp to lighten the mood.
