    Hi Tom, I moved your post to a new thread.
    It'll get more attention with a correct title in the proper forum.

    You can start here:
    FishLore Forum and navigate to whatever forum best fits your post.

    Congrats on your new fish!
    I have a few Sparklers and I love them.
    Hope you post pics soon!

    congrats on the new fish! That's a lot of fish to add at once - keep a close eye on the water parameters, and enjoy your new swimmers. :)

    Hello Tom. Congrats on the new fish. Beautiful. I'll have to let another member ID the type of gourami for you. Thanks for sharing the photos. We love them around here.
    Best wishes!

    Great photos. New fish are so fun and until they settle in I always get so nervous about their well being that I'm checking the tank every few minutes. Sorry I can't id the gourami.

    My best guess on the gourami would be a moonlight gourami because of the shimmering scales. The color is a little different, but the shape and scales are the same.
