My water parameters are Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 20, ph 7.4
Thanks in advance mark.
These fish are not very hardy and many of them (maybe 40 %) that are imported, are prone to mycobacterium/Iridovirus which is not treatable.
Honey gourami or pearl gourami are much hardier .
Google Iridovirus in Dwarf gourami.
