new pics of my anabantids :)

so i've been taking all these pictures of my new female betta and then i started to feel guilty because i was neglecting the gourami so i borrowed my mum's lovely pentax camera (because it takes waaayy better pictures than my own camera) and went off to photograph both of my fish.
lots of pics to come..be prepared...

thanks :) pity the blue iridescence on flame's eyes didnt show up in these pics!
i think my gourami has grown since she's been in the 15 gal - she used to be tiny and she looks quite large now.

Nice pics. I love Flame's colors - she's a beauty.

Great looking gourami too. Thanks for sharing.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

it's a she, and she is the golden variant of the three-spot gourami, so yeah a golden gourami :) there is no colour difference in threespots and the other larger gouramis, that i know of. those variations are only in the dwarf gourami species. u can tell the larger species sexes apart because males have long trailing fins.
