I think your female died of stress, not sure about the male. sometimes people just assume it's idiovirus when it could've been something else. Good luck with your fry vash!Vash said:My female died on the 4th day.
My male died on somewhere between 3~4 weeks.
They mated on the second day. But the male started to refuse continue mating by attacking her on the 4th day. I suspect her died of unable to release eggs.
As for the male, he was so aggressive toward everything. Even poked at the snails and tried to corner shrimps. Then all the sudden he lost appetite and turned dull and dark for a week before died. Not 100% sure if it's the DGD.
I have two surviving fry right now. They are 2 days short of six weeks old. Nobody seem to know how long before I can certain these fry don't have DGD.
Most sources say Dwarf Gourami can live for 4+ years. Most of them are on the market around 4~6 months old from what I hear. So if they die within a year at your place, that's not a long life span.
