Sexing flame gourami

Allisonlynn1321

I purchased two dwarf gourami for my 35 gal. I wanted a male and female to limit aggression. I was sure I got a male and female but now I’m not too sure. I’ll post pictures of them both. There’s a flame and a powder blue. The blue I was certain was a male and flame a female. Please let me know if you think otherwise!

Both are males.

Many breeders tend to sell the males and keep the females for breeding purposes. If hobbyists cannot obtain females, they cannot start breeding them. Thus, most of the dwarf gourami you find at pet stores will be males.

Allmost all DG's come from South East Asia. The only reason there are only males available in the US is that wholesalers only buy the colorful males, cause those sell better.
In Europe females are quite available.
