When Love isn't enough
 
Well, another day in fish land and all is well, or so it seems. Upon closer review one might notice the subtle changes happening and the relationships that are budding.

Poor two tone was busy this evening showing off his best moves to the apple of his eye, Blue. Blue is a safisticated girl and wants nothing to do with the likes of him. He is just a... Dwarf Gourami. He is a persistent little guy though and his heart insists he continues to try so...

A subtle glance

A gentle touch

A shy girl runs to her quiet hiding spot

Two Tone is not put off, he continues to try knowing that his happiness depends on it, plus.. .he knows the secret... Where the side door to the hiding spot is.

BOO

So I watch and wait... Will it be a happy ending? Will the swim off into the Pennywort together?
Only time will tell

Will this be the end of this story? Will there be a "happily ever after?"

I think there won't be. All of my gouramis are male and chase each other everywhere I have a flame red named Mango ""who I love to bits". They are only feeling for pharamones with their feelers. Unfortunately there mightn't be any true love. But keep hope

I love this thread Inga :)

It must be the hopeless romantic in me but I want Two Tone and Blue to swim side by side and travel the world (tank) together.

Ha Ha, I am glad I am not alone. I love the little guy but Blue is my favorite.

LOL I also think there won't be. This thread is more of a joke/story not a true question. It is hard to read sarcasm through the computer. I just love the little guy and it cracks me up seeing him "courting her" and she swims by and whacks him with her tail or turns and goes the other way. He just keeps trying though. :roll:

Definitely going to be watching this thread and the gourami love story. Two-tone's determination is cute! Would have made a great photo-story around Valentine's Day.

I would say, maybe one day, when the camera isnt working they will spawn, haha.

Is there really any one time better then another for love? ha ha


I am not sure there will be any more to the story but time will tell. Thus far it is the same old thing. Two Tone shows off and kisses up and Blue ignores

Two-tone... I think it's time to get the chocolate out from under the driftwood and turn on some Barry White.

:rofl: This thread made my day. A good laugh does wonders for turning a bad day around.

Never give up, Two-Tone! Time to break out the guitar :guitarist: and throw rocks at her window (or feelers, that works, too).
