Sparkling Pygmy Gourami Care Sheet

Blub

Pygmy Gourami
(Trichopsis pumila)

Common names:
Pygmy gourami, Sparkling gourami, Dwarf croaking gourami.
Size: 3cm (approx 1 in.)
pH: 6.0-7.0
Tempº: 25ºC - 28ºC (77 F - 82 F)
Tank region: Middle-Top layer
Origin: Thailand, Malaysia, Sumatra, Vietnam.
Gender: Difficult to determine. Male’s analfin is a little more pointed.
Notes: This tiny fish is very peaceful, and makes a great addition to a Nano tank or a Community of peaceful fishes not large enough to eat it. Ideal tank mates are corys, Plecos, Hatchets, Tetras, Platys and Guppys. A well planted tank does this little fish a favour – giving it plenty of spaces to hide. Their tank should be at least 45litres is capacity. It is a good idea to have ‘dither fish’ like Neon tetras to bring this fish out into the open. These fish can look a little dull to begin with, but when you look closely you will notice their ‘sparkle’!
