Pearl Gourami
(Trichogaster leeri)

Common names:
Pearl gourami, LeerI gourami, Lace gourami,
Size: 10cm (approx 4 inches)
pH: 6.0 – 8.0
Tempº: 24ºC - 28ºC (75 F - 82 F)
Tank region: Middle/Top
Origin: Maylasia, Sumatra, Borneo
Gender: Males have a red throat and longer fins.
Notes: These fish are somewhat more delicate than other gouramis. (Like Three-spot, Dwarf and Honey) However, it is still one of the most attractive and easy-to-keep Gouramis around. Like all other Labyrinth fish; it can breath atmospheric air – and does best in a slow current. The Pearl gourami can be freaked out by many larger fish – and simply hide away. They are more brave and active in pairs – and can quickly become the dominant fish.
