    Hi Everyone!

    This is my first post. I bought a couple of gouramis to cycle my tank and everything seems to be running smoothly but I think one of them is pregnant... See image below:


    If is pregnant what should I do??

    Thanks for your help,

    Gouramis don't "get pregnant", they are egglayers.

    Perhaps you could hold off feeding for a couple of days?

    Ok, thanks for your comments.

    xNick, why do you recommend me to hold off feeding?

    Just in case of fish "obesity" caused by overfeeding

    Looks normal to me, it's what gouramis look like. Sometimes you can get one a little more rounder than others if they're fed really well, they usually keep eating even when they're full.
