can anyone help me with sparkling Gouramis ??
im thinking of getting a couple for my tank, if read the profile on this site, just wundered if there are anyother thing anyone can tell me
One thing not in the profile concerns the aggressiveness of the males. In the right environment, this species is a prolific spawner. As with all gourami that build bubblenests, the male guards the nest (eggs). They are very territorial. I have had to move my present group of 5 through 3 different tanks due to the non-stop attacks by the males on other fish.
I didn't have this, or didn't notice it anyway, when I had this fish previously (different fish) in a larger (70g) tank that was very thickly planted. I assume the thick plants [the tank was literally choked with Wisteria, there was no open swimming space at all] kept them confined to smaller spaces. The gourami spawned frequently and fry survived among the plants. Chocolate Gourami also spawned in this setup and fry survived. I had dwarf loaches on the substrate that no one seemed to mind, and a large group of Lambchop Rasbora that also loved the plant cover.
