    so a week or so ago i was give a pair of honey gouramies and think they are so prity and cool but i put them in a separate tank as so they could breed becuse that is what i heard you do

    well so far since i have put them in there 3 days ago yesterday the male desided to get the very very ritch dark coulors that they do dureing mateing time well i assume since he is so colerfull and i have read that is what they do dureing that time correct me if i am wrong and he has also built a huge bubble nest and is always around the female

    so my question is what happens next and how long should i exspect till they breed or am i missing something as i have little to no exspirence breeding gouramies

    thank you in advance

    Instead of retyping a bunch of information already on a good website, go to this website: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/gourami/breeding2.php.

    It is all about Breeding Gouramis. I think the biggest points are

    1) Put the female in first so she get the lay of the land.
    2) Have filtration, but nothing that will disturb the water and/or the bubblenest.

    Good Luck
