Great Fish! I've got the exact same dwarf gourami!
Are Bumblebee Gobies hard to look after? Ive heard they are picky eaters

Mine are fine, they grow to about 2 inches but mine are only 1". They eat all the leftovers except when i put bloodworm in there. They go for that straight away! You need to provide lots of rocks for them or they just wont be very active.

I tried taking them last night. You have to be realy patient tho. I got 1 good pic for every 20. play around with flash, no flash, lights on/off, different settings on your camera

Ok I want to get some Bublebee's but they're so tiny and like $5 each. Bit of a rip especially as they only sell them at like 1.5cm (.6inch)

That is a rip off!!!! I got mine for 50 pence which is about $1.10 (USD) I think GO for a private dealer mate, youll be better off that way. They are such cool little fish, I seriously recommend them

If your talking about the bumblebee, I got it at a big garden centre where they specialise in loads of varieties of fish. I was told that they need salt but to be honest, I think that the whole adding salt thing is a bit ancient now. It may have aaplied when the hobby first started but all the fish you get now have been bred in freshwater and sold in freshwater

Love your tank and your fish are awesome! Did you know your Gouramis can be trained to come up into your hand and eat? Wanna see a pic? ;D

I cupped my hand just slightly to start with and put shrimp pellets in it and as they got used to my hand they would come up into my almost closed hand to eat. The down side is when you're cleaning the tank they still check you out to see if you have food for them

Nope don't have big hands They were young, the zoom makes my hands look big. Most fish will be very interactive with you if you take the time to play with them.
Still think your fish are gorgeous.
