Welcome to the forum!

Those look like mutilated/deformed pearl gouramis.

hehehehe, ya i think they're gourami...but i certainly didn't mutilate them

2 types of this same fish seem to be in a lot of the shops here in Thailand....this yellow version and a much darker orange version. look like pearl gourami but definitely a different shape, turned up mouth and a lot more discus shaped.

hello and welcome.
i do have to say they look deformed pearl gouramis,pearls mouths are
turned upward,beause they are top feeders.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

a "deformity" local to where i am? the reason i say that is because most of the shops have them here...shaped this way. my little unique, deformed gouramis

i am..... i'm relatively new to this and my tank is rather small (10G)
i have a few fish but all pretty tiny.
so far no major dramas i just noticed that the demasonis are very territorial

would you be able to afford a large tank for the cichlids to be by themselves ?
