    I got this paridice gorami a few months ago as a rescue. It fully recovered and is now part for a 29 gallon tank. I was wondering what type of paridice gorami it is. It has very very almost un noticeable amount of patterning on its end side and I haven’t seen one like it.

    I think that it is just a female.

    Well, sex is probably correct at female, but species appears to be Belontia signata, the Combtail Gourami. The orange color and lack of clear bars are good identifiers for this species. Males get filaments on the back edge of the tail, but females do not. I've never seen a Macropodus with that orange color.
