Can you please help me to understand the gender of gourami in this photo...
Because Of the rounded tip on the dorsal fin.......female.
I would say female as well.
Thank you all will introducing female with existing male hurt her. Tank size is 20gall with plastic plants and ornaments to hide. Existing male is much bigger than her around 3.5 inch and female in above photo is around 2 inch. Pls advice
And the male is platinum variant, female is blue
To be honest a 20G in my opinion is too small for this species.
This would be temporary setup will move them to 55g by June
At 2 inches I'd call it a juvenile, sex as yet undetermined. If the other is nearly twice its size, might be risky to put them together.
