I recently got a blue gourami. What's the usual maximum size do they reach in an aquarium? Internet sources say they get to about 5 inches but I want to hear about first hand experience instead. I actually wanted to get the pearl gourami but when I asked how big they'd get the store keeper pointed to a foot long semi flat fish and it scared the heck out of me. :lol:
Also how long does it take for them to get to their maximum size? Thanks guys!
I had a blue gourami that got close to 6". My Pearls are a bit smaller... the male is about 4-4-1/2" and the female is a bit smaller. I don't know what the shop keeper was on but Pearls do not get a foot long! LOL
really? now i feel sad coz i really wanted that pearl gourami. :-?
not that Mr. Blue "Hey Buddy! Move Over" Gourami isn't nice to have. :lol:
if you don't mind me asking... how long have you had yours?
hahahahahahahaha sorry but the pet shop guy needs a kick up the ......
Pearls are my favorite gourami. The female I've had for 2 years and the male for a little less than that...about 1-1/2 years. I don't have my blue gourami anymore but I had him for about 6 years.
fryup: i know! it was the owner's daughter so i kinda believed her. i could've gotten pearls instead. they keep a classy place inside a mall too and they don't have sick or dead fish so i kinda thought she knew what she was saying. :-(
jeaninel: wow they live really long. and yeah i agree about pearls too. i like how the streak runs straight thru their eyes as well.
unfortunately my slots are already filled up. if i want to add pearls i'll have to put up some fish for adoption. :lol:
u could still get them ...!!
