I asked at one of the lfs near me and was told all the females are typically kept by the breeders, I'm guessing so they can bread more dg's.I know female dg’s are very hard to find - no money in it I guess - but if you find any let me know!
Not sure where you are in Ontario but I did find out that menagerie pet shop in Toronto carries female dwarf gouram8s.CraniumRex said:I’ve only found a few places that ship fish - trust me I’ve looked - so will be watching this thread.
One is Angelfins in Guelph. Lovely stock and excellent shipping along with an array of neat products you don’t find at a typical LFS (including meds). I’ve never seen them carry gouramis though.
The other is aFishionados in Manitoba - subscribe to their list as they have unusual domestic and wild caught species and let you know what is coming. I’ve never seen a gourami on their list, either. Seems like mostly cichlids though he does carry a fairly broad assortment.

Wow you are resourceful! I am in SW Ont and drove over an hour for my Bolivian rams so I hear you on biting the bullet - gas isn’t cheap and it does add time and stress, possibly more than shipping.Corrie Williamson said:Not sure where you are in Ontario but I did find out that menagerie pet shop in Toronto carries female dwarf gouram8s.
There is an lfs here in hamilton called urban zoo that is trying to get females for me. However neither of them ship.
I am working with aquarium.net on trying to get females. They mostly get males but they do ship.
So far that's as far as I gotten. I may need to bite the bullet and drive the 1 plus hour into Toronto if the local lfs and the living aquarium can't get them in.
Thank you! They do have some amazing fish and they sell some of the as pairs. Unfortunately they don't have what I am looking for but I might change my mind and go for Apistogramma Trifasciata Redfin. They are adorable and so colorful and you never see them in the lfs around here so I'm thinking I could sell them easily. Still need to do some more research on them.Algonquin said:You can also try Shrimp Fever.com, they are in Scarborough. They specialize in Shrimp (obviously!) but carry a good variety of fish too.
