Grouami and communities
I mostly wanted to snag first post in new thread, but also would like to finish my research before adding some to my community.
Got a 55 gallon with blue and orange neons, otos, one SAE, some bamboo shrimp (cherrys will be added soon), and guppies. My tank is also heavily planted.
I keep the tank at 76-78 degrees, the ph (despite my best efforts) is at 7.6 and otherwise a normal cycled tank.
I have enough unused bioload to add about 13 inches of fish
I was going to get some dwarf gourami but would prefer a pair of completely harmless ones that will get to be about 5-6 inches each.
I know that some types (chocolate and paradise) can tend to be more aggressive and would value your opinions!
I would do a pair of Pearl Gouramis. They are a more peaceful than the blue, gold, opaline, etc. And they are my favorite gourami!
They get to about 4-5". The male will have pointier dorsal and anal fins and more red in their "chest" area. The female has a more rounded dorsal fin. You should be able to sex them when they're about a couple inches big.
Thanks Ill buy just that sometime next week.
