Chocolate Gouramis
Here are some photos (and a video of my gouramis "fighting" soon after i got them);
the "better looking" one (it was the one that posed when i decided to take pictures of them, plus it has brighter markings than the other one)
actual colour of the fish (but not that focused)
Fighting (not in the best focus, but you can see them)
Im working on getting a decent "current" view of the aquarium, ill hopefully have a pic later tonight

Well rather than making a new post I figured I would post new pics here (I thought it was always better to post in an old thread than to start a new one):
And 2 pics of the new darter (one I posted over in U.S. Natives)

What do you feed them?

Garfisher 01-12-2011 11:46 AM

freeze dried bloodworms

wow, gorgeous.

I plan on getting some samurai gourami when I get another tank... They're closely related I believe.

So, they're too good for flakes then? :-PLive food only... Hmm. Could they eat a blackworm?

wow,they're lovley,and the tank is nice too.

they were eating crushed flake, but it was too messy and they werent eating much of it. They do pick at shrimp pellets as well, but they took to the freeze dried bloodworms extremely well, so why mess with a good thing:lol: By the looks of the size of the blackworms they should be edible, if you have a small snail invasion you can always crush the snail and let it drop, mine liked eating crushed snail if i found ones big enough to warrant culling.These two pics are of the other one, it doesnt have as vibrant markings as the other one, but it still looks nice with the white outline on the fins:

They are very pretty. I would like to add though that freeze dried blood worms do not have all the nutrients the fish need you should try the frozen blood worms they are much better for them my honey sunset gouramis love them.
