Gourami antannas/wiskers

Does anybody know if the long wisker type things on the Gourami serve a purpose or do they just make them look cute. LOL I have googled but could not find an answer. LOL Mine seem to reach out with theres and feel around but am not sure if that is what they are really doing. LOL Oh they are Honey Gourami if that make a difference.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

They seem to use them to feel stuff... mine will 'stroke' each other or even my hand with them. It's quite funny to watch.

Yea mine do the same thing I like watching them. When they touch each other with them it makes me think of the shrimp in the movie nemo when he would grab the fish and spin them around to clean them. LOL
