    Hi, I was thinking about getting a sparkling gourami for my 8 Gallon, lightly planted tank. Was just wandering if anyone had any advice/ tips/ tricks for giving them the best possible care? Or if anyone could tell me their experience with them? Thanks!

    Make sure you put them in water they don't like it when you don't put them in water.

    Hi GalaxyGuppies
    Sparkling Gouramis are great little fish. I really enjoyed mine. They can be kept in groups but can get a little aggressive and territorial during mating.

    Because of that it's recommended to get more females than males but they are hard to sex. I never did figure it out except when they were actually mating.

    They like planted tanks and can be a bit shy.

    Here is the profile one of our member wrote. From my experience it is very accurate.

    Ok thanks for the help Lucy, I can't wait to get them! Did you have any trouble feeding them as some sources say they are quite picky?

    I fed mine finely crushed omega one flakes. They seemed to like those.
