As I described in another thread, I have a dwarf gourami in QT under observation for a red spot by his mouth. I did some research online and come across this site. It's quite a pessimistic view of DGs. To quote the expert, Neale Monks: "They will die, as sure as God made little green apples. I really can't say this strongly enough: DO NOT BUY DWARF GOURAMIS!!!! Remove and humanely destroy the infected fish. Praying to the Fish Gods is about all you do to save the other one. Nothing else helps." Is this a common view? If so, why isn't everyone warned against buying DGs? The problems cited on that website are a bit dated, the most recent being in 2007. Is there any new development on the so called "Dwarf Grourami Disease"? By the way, my DG seems OK now - the affected eye looks almost completely normal, the red spot fades, he is eating, swimming around, etc. I will keep him in QT and treat him with Paragard once the med arrives. Just want to know whether he is doomed.
