    Question Is A Pearl Gourami A Good Option?

    I read that you can get away with a larger group of pearls if you can accommodate the space (they get up to 4-5 inches). But yeah, mine wants to be the king of the liquid jungle.

    Question Is A Pearl Gourami A Good Option?

    Yup. Not as stunning looking as a Pearl but they are docile. (And you can have many more of them and they do not fight each other at all).

    Question Is A Pearl Gourami A Good Option?

    I have a Pearl. He's approaching close to 5 inches. He started off docile but now is asserting his dominance. We used to have a blue powder dwarf gourami who was about the same size but the Pearl has doubled in size and was relentlessly harassing. However, the Pearl does not harass any...

    Cabomba-can I Float It?

    Not sure if my light is strong enough to keep the Cabomba growing if I planted down the substrate. I have a Fluval Aquasky and I'm not sure the PAR is strong enough. I could plant it maybe 7-8 inches higher up and maybe the PAR will be more adequate for it.

    Cabomba-can I Float It?

    I've seen the struggles with planting Cabomba (and the lower stem/leaves dying off b/c of the canopying nature of the plant). Could I float it? I'm trying to give some of my smaller fish some safe hiding spaces near the surface and these plants are so bushy and I love it. Is it primarily a...

    Stocking?

    German Blue Rams require a hotter tank, at least 82 degrees and even higher. That is not compatible with the danios/peppered cories who prefer around 76 and under. When I started I accidentally got a GBR and it didn't do well b/c I had a 78 degree tank. Returned it.

    125 Litre/33 gallon Stocking.

    And man, pearls get pretty big. Mine is at least 5 inches now. When we got ours it was about the same size as the powder blue gourami. But once the pearl got bigger, it started harassing the daylights out of the other gourami and I had to rehome it in another tank.

    125 Litre/33 gallon Stocking.

    Yeah. Getting a female BR has been impossible for me. The song "Dude Looks Like a Lady" repeatedly blasts in my head as I stare at the tube of a BR for 15 minutes straight. I love Pearl Gouramis. But maybe I just bought one that is territorial. He leaves every fish alone except for the other...

    125 Litre/33 gallon Stocking.

    I have two Bolivian Rams with my Pearl Gourami. They never interact as the BRs are mostly bottom dwelling and the PG is mid-top. However, in my personal experience, in a tank that small, I would advise against multiple PG males (or other Dwarf Gouramis with a PG). I had to take my powder blue...

    Can I Keep A Pair Of Dwarf Gourami With Tetras

    Yeah. They have a very "it's cool dude" approach in my tank even when there are a million other things going on.

    Can I Keep A Pair Of Dwarf Gourami With Tetras

    I do have 4 honey gouramis in my 40G. I think you could get away with 2 but it's still tight with all those tetras. They ideally could use more space but it is what it is.

    Can I Keep A Pair Of Dwarf Gourami With Tetras

    I had two male Dwarf Gouramis in a 40G tank once and they went at it all the time (had to separate them). In a 15G tank, (with 14 other fish in it), I think it'll be too cramped (let alone all the fighting between the DGs).

    Yeah. Second watching out for the Dwarf Gs going at it.

    Paradise Fish (gourami)

    Interesting. Yeah. Unfortunately my daughter's betta died and we wanted to try something new instead of another betta. I hear these are pretty hardy fish and when they get their full colors once comfortable, pretty beautiful (and they're cheap!!!).

    Beginner Stocking Help 75 Gal

    Congrats! I have a 40G Breeder and my next one will be a 75G. I think your stocking ideas are fine. I can personally tell you about the honey Gs and Bolivian rams. I have 4 honey Gs and 2 Bolivians in my tank. They all get along just fine. For my surface dwelling fish, we love our Golden...

    Paradise Fish (gourami)

    We finally took the plunge on one. Got a pretty small juvenile sized one to put in our 20G tank. I know they have a reputation for being aggressive but hoping that it's not the case. Anyone else here have one of these? They are actually very beautiful looking but I understand they've lost favor...

    Anything Wrong With My Golden Rams?

    Ha yeah. I was going to say that too. When I researched it was funny how they're the same.

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

    I did make the mistake of getting a blue power DG AND a pearl gourami. But they seemed to have marked their respective territories and rarely fight. Every once in a while they'll chase each other off. I wouldn't do it again.

    Anything Wrong With My Golden Rams?

    IIRC, these rams are similar to German Blue Rams (different colors) and like warmer water (82F+ degrees). I wanted to get some but after some research they were not temperature compatible with my main tank inhabitants.

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

    The only ones I have multiples of are honey gouramis, which are known to be docile. I have 4 and they do not bother anything. But they're also only 2 inches top compared to some of the others that get 5-6 inches and are much more territorial.
