    Bought another Gourami from local Pet Shop again, this time it's a Red Robbin, not sure what this is but pretty sure it's not normal, I can't find anything online either [​IMG]
    He's been in tank for 2 days and no sign of condition changing, could it be the colouration of the Gourami or is it something worse. Ammonia and nitrites are up so been doing water changes daily to try bring it back down.

    Just realised pictures not clear enough to make out details, but the back fin is quite nasty looking grey/brown colour that extends onto his body

    Doesn't look wrong to me.
    Two days a very short !
    Isn't this another colormorph of T.labiosa than a Red Robin?

    I know two days are short, just thats the length of time I've had it, he's still the same and it's spread slightly, started using a slight amount of aquarium salt the other day. I'm not quite sure, was sold it as a Red Robin Gourami

    That looks very Similar, does the colouration of yours look pretty nasty around the tail? [​IMG]

    It doesn't to me.
    Btw : please don't use aquariumsalt if you've no idea what's the problem (if there is one).

    Just been to my LPS, they were saying it sounds and looks like a fungal infection. The salts mainly for another problem that happened because of ty biological enhancer. But thanks for the advice

    What looks like a fungal infection? Think I'm going to be blind hahaha.
    Only thing I see is quite a healthy looking fish.

    Yeah you really can't see it well in those pictures, but the slightly different colour on the fin at rear looks quite grey and cotton like, I'll try get a decent picture if the bugger will sit still :')
    Edit just realised I got this picture later that night.
