My Gourami(s) may be pregnant
I have researched a bit and know that they lay eggs and the daddy will take care of the nest.
I have bought/set up a 5 gal tank to try and keep the babies.
Do i take the mommy/daddy out of my 20 gal and put them into the 5 gal tank or should i just leave them in the bigger tank? Where should i be looking for the nest of eggs? I have been told it will look like a cluster of bubbles.
I do have lots of plants/breeding grass in the 20 gal tank.

What kind of Gourami is it? If it's a betta or a dwarf, I'd put the male in the tank and wait until he makes a bubble nest, and then add the female. If he making a nest already?
They are a light blue color.
I'm not even sure where the nest is, as there are many plants in the tank. I was told to put a flat rock or stacking rocks as they like to lay the eggs there.
Now that i think about it i can't tell a male from a female all i know is a few are "fat" like they are pregnant.
you can't really miss the next. it looks like soap suds.
Can you post a pic? Is it a Opaline Gourami Trichogaster trichopterus?
Here is my tank with one of the Gourami's
How do i download a pic on this site??
Nest of bubbles??
I was told that when my Gourami lays her eggs that it will look like a "nest of bubbles" but in my 20 gal tank i have the underground filter that has the clear tubes on the sides and these make bubbles on top of the tank, so where should i be looking for a "nest" of bubbles that could be eggs??
Also when i find them do i then take the daddy and the nest of eggs out and put them into my 5 gal tank i bought esp for keeping the babies safe from the other fish before they hatch? Of course i will take daddy out when they hatch.
Now that i looked closer in the tank i think i may have 2 pregnant Gourami's.
Ok finally got a pic of one of my pregnant gourami's
