Dwarf powder blue gourami male or female??

Pikephillips322

I recently ordered a trio of dwarf powder blue gourami. I requested either all males(preference) all females, or a male and 2 females. I just didn’t want 2 males and 1 female as I’ve read that can cause aggression. They came in the mail a few days ago, perfect. They appear healthy and have acclimated beautifully into my community tank so far. I am new to gourami though and am curious exactly what I received. 2 of them are beautiful blue and exactly as expected of males. The other is still beautiful but is more brown/grey looking and I’ve read that generally how females look. So have I ended up with 2 males and a female like I specifically said I didn’t want? So far everyone is getting along fine. There’s no issue between the gourami or with the other fish in the tank. If it is a female I’ll definitely keep an eye out though because I’ve read the aggression starts around breeding time(which I have no interest in). Thank I’m advance!!

Well it looks like you ended up with 2 males and one female unfortunately.
You likely run into trouble later when they come to breed but also when they fully mature.

Uuuugh. That’s exactly what I was afraid of. I’d honestly rather they’d only sent the 2 males.
