My male gourami's head seems to be turning blue.. I know dwarf gouramis change colors while in mating. But I have never seen what the 'breeding colors' are on a flame gourami. So maybe he is getting them now?

Also my female gouramI seems fat. She is much larger then the male.. I would try fasting them but its impossible since they snack on my floating plants. (She is acting completly fine. She is just... Fat)

A picture may help. It could just be him naturally gaining brighter colors.

True.

Well here is a picture. Its really hard to see in pictures.. Its just the grey part is turning blueish. I'll get a picture of him from the top tomorrow, that's where its most noticable

Well if he isn't showing any signs of stress of illness (Such as low activity, hanging at top of the tank, bloat, etc) then its probably just natural color. Like some humans have their hair color change a bit, or eye color.

He is acting completly fine. He is just gaining colors, I was curious because I had heard of dg gaining mating colors (or something similar)


And here is his girl:
