Gourami Breeding With Betta
Random question i know but. . . Since they are from the same family could a Gourami breed with a Betta or visa versa ?

I highly doubt it, they are pretty far from each other

Not that I've ever heard of.

Never had it happen in my old tanks. Don't think it is likely.

I used to have a dwarf gourami in my community tank, which also housed a female betta. She (the female betta) was constantly trying to mate with the gourami, but he would have none of it. Unfortunately, my gourami died a few weeks ago, so i dont know for sure if it is possible that they could breed... i doubt it, though! They may be related, but it's a pretty far-off relationship.
