    I have an unplanted 30gal tank with an under-gravel filtration system (I know they're controversial, but it's been working excellently for me with proper upkeep.) That houses a Dwarf Gourami, 2 Neon Tetra, 1 Rosey Barb, 1 Gold finned Danio and 2 pearl Danios, and lastly but not least, an upside...

  3. Dwarf Gourami - Swimming Frantically Along Glass?

    Anabantids
    Hi Everyone, I introduced 2 dwarf gourami to my tank a couple of days ago, a male and a female. They seem quite happy and feed well, I give them a mixed diet of flakes, blood worm and brine shrimp which they love. They're in with 6 cherry barbs - they all seem to tolerate each other, I've...

  6. Will a chocolate Gourami pair be ok/happy in this tank

    Anabantids
    I was wondering if a chocolate Gourami would be okay in this planted setup? Currently there is little to no aggression and I would like to keep it that way. Size: -> 55 gallon decor: -> too many live plants -> real rock caves fish: -> Common pleco : 1ft (~30cm) long -> bristlenose pleco ->...
  7. Stocking 10 Gallon Tank

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I would just like some insight as ive read and heard many different and opposite answers on this. Would 3 cory cats ( either bronze or peppered) and a dwarf gourami be fine in a 10 gallon tank? I'm using an Aqueon Quiet Flow 20 filter which says its suitable for 20-30 gallon tanks. My plan is...

    Hello, :-) This is my first ever post on here. This website has helped me so much with setting up my third aquarium (in my lifetime) in the last few months, I decided to create an account of my own. I currently own a twenty-six gallon acrylic. It is fully cycled. I used...
  9. Gourami Tankmates?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hey everyone, I'm looking for a few fish to add to my 15 gallon tank. Are there any particularly good tankmates to add? I'd like to avoid any schooling fish and get some that will live fine by themselves or in a pair. Thanks.
  10. Male or female honey gourami? Also - is this even a honey gourami?

    Anabantids
    Hi all, About a month ago I had two honey gouramis shipped to me - I requested two females, but I can't tell whether they are or not. I've attached a photo of one of the fish, the other won't hold still long enough for me to take a picture. The one pictured is bigger than the other one, with...

  12. Help me figure out the perfect tropical freshwater community!

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Hi Everyone! Short intro...so previously to moving to college (4+ years ago), I had a 55 gallon cold freshwater tank which unfortunately was destroyed in a house fire. Lately I've been missing it a lot and considering getting a 75 gallon and moving into tropical fish. I was doing a lot of...
  13. Betta or Gourami poll

    Anabantids
    Here is a poll on what to add to my 20g tank. Betta or Gourami. I'm not going to add specific Gourami because I'm not sure myself, so feel free to vote, but don't expect me to automatically go for the winner because life happens.
  14. Betta or Gourami?

    Anabantids
    Okay, right now, while I'm finding some homes for baby platys, I'm thinking about buying a new fish for my 20g tank, and I have a tough choice, either buy a betta or a gourami, so I can use some suggestions. Right now, what I have, after the babies are relocated, hopefully, are a Bolivian Ram...

    For 3 days my Gold Gourami has been swimming around almost like it has no control. Its also gulping air about every 20 Seconds. My other 2 Gouramis, a male Dwarf, and a female opaline are acting fine. Also anyone notice the light patch on its forehead? What should I do? She has been getting...
  16. Choosing fish to put in my tropical tank

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I have a 15g tank with one female platy and a nerite snail. I was thinking about putting in two female swordtail females, and two dwarf or honey gouramis. I don't want to put any fish in that would bully my platy. I won't put guppies in, as I've had bullying problems before. I ideally want...

  18. Slightly bloated Opaline gourami with small, flaky growth behind right, front fin.

    Anabantids
    Title pretty much says it all. Can really describe the growth as anything else. Its almost like a large, whitish pimple just behind the fin. And he's appears to have gained some weight rather quickly. Hopefully pictures will shed some light. Fyi, I know gouramis are natural top dwellers, but...
  19. Companions for Pearl Gourami

    Anabantids
    Hello! I have a cycled, heavily (artificially) planted 38g tank which currently houses 2 pearl gourami. (Third died suddenly...I'm not sure why.) I will be getting another female gourami for the tank. When I do that, I'm also thinking of getting some tank mates because the tank is really quite...
  20. Are Gouramis sociable?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm considering adding one or more Dwarf Gouramis to a 20-gal tank that presently contains a school of Zebra Danios. Are they compatible? I'm seeing mixed reports on whether Gouramis (even of the same species) can be housed together without conflicts. Tropical Fish for Freshwater Aquariums...
