Hello,

It's my first time writing on this forum and it would be really nice to get some help with my pearl gourami's. I have had them for a week now and at first I thought that I had 2 males but now I don't know for sure.

Thanks in advance!

Okay, that's what I thought. Should I return 1 and get a female for it?

Yes, which is a shame cause both are looking awesome.

Yeah, their colours are really showing!

I'd keep the one in the back (if you still see difference).

Yes, he is a bit better looking. More colour and bigger fins.

Mainly look at the dorsal in the LFS (females shorter) + females have a deeper more chubby breast

I should've looked more into it before I bought them. They said they were a male and female though. I hope I can just bring it back and get a female. Thanks for your help!
