What do female dwarf gouramis look like?

Gina423

does any one have a link or a picture of where I can see a female dwarf gourami. I want to get a male and female and I want to see a female so I can see the difference. Thank you

I have read that the females are a little duller in color than the males. I haven't seen any pics though.

Yea, I heard that too, I just don't want to get two males.

Color and fin shape. Males are brighter and have a pointed dorsal fin. Females are noticably less colorful and have rounded tips to their dorsal fin.

It also seems like the female dorsal fins are shorter, is this true?

This is a female dwarf gourami and there is also a pic of the male one at the end. I've got 2 of those with A male. First I had only one female with the male and he started getting aggressive and attacking the female. I've put her in a breeder for 3 days until she recovered and then put the male in the breeder instead of the female as a punishment for his behaviour, I'm planning to keep him there for 2 weeks. How can you tell if a female gourami is pregnant please? thanks
