    Male or female dwarf gouramis?

    Im in the UK, the fish was purchased from pets at home. I have asked about a different fish previously and they have said they will not take any returns. Instead they advised i get another tank(which is not ideal considering i have 2) also i don't really have anyone i know who could take it. I...

    Male or female dwarf gouramis?

    Oh no, that sounds worrying. I am not able to return the fish as the shop doesn’t allow it, should i just wait it out and see how they get on? I have got a smaller second tank but I don’t really want to introduce the gourami in there, as they have been getting along fine for months...

    Male or female dwarf gouramis?

    Thanks for your reply, i was advised they would be fine when buying them. But i have just read about keeping two males together and it doesn’t seem to be a good idea. They have been fine towards each other since i got them. They are the only two in a 31 gallon tank at the moment, i will be...

    Male or female dwarf gouramis?

    Hi all, I have bought two dwarf gouramis. I was sold them both as males and after bringing them home, i am not too sure what they are. Their fins are different, one looks male to me and the other female. Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Do you know where i can get that from? i’m from the UK. Also how much would i need for a 118litre tank? i think that’s approximately 31 gallons.

    Another update guys, i managed to get 0 nitrites, finally. It took 48 hours to go to 0. This was last night. I dosed ammonia again last night, and today it is still 2-5 ppm so I’m hoping by tomorrow it is 0 again. Does 0 nitrites in 48 hours mean I’m any closer to finishing? Also, still having...

    Just an update from tonight, my nitrite is either 1 or 2ppm hard to differentiate between the colours. also, I don’t know what kind of an impact this has on cycling a tank, but my pH is dropping. The water from my tap is 7.2 and when i measured a few days ago, my tank was reading 7. However...

    So, nitrite is still present which is concerning now. It is measuring at 0.25 ppm so it has decreased. I have gone ahead and dosed ammonia today, just to see what happens in the next few days.

    So, i just did a diluted test of half tank water and half tap water. The results are very close to 0ppm its still blue but not tht bright blue you get with 0. If that makes any sense.

    Yes, turns from blue to a light purple very gradually. Yes i did a 60% and a 90% over 2 days.

    Hi guys, another update and it’s not looking too good. My nitrite is still exactly the same as it was 24 hours ago. It has measured 0.50ppm again today. I’m so confused on what is going on, it dropped from 1 or 2ppm to 0.5 yesterday but seems stuck now. Any advise on what i should do?
