    Hello just wondering what DG I should get. Pearl, Neon Blue or Flame Red. My tank has a dark blue backdrop, dark brown fluval substrate and many green plants. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks :)

    The flame red would really stand out.

    Ok. That was one of my favourites :)
    Do you have any DG's and do you like them?

    I just got a red flame a couple days ago. He's still getting used to his new home.

    What's his character?

    So far, very timid and peaceful. I have to feed all my other fish on one side of the tank, then wait for him to come to the surface on the other side to feed, otherwise, he doesn't eat.

    I dont think Pearl gourami are dwarf gourami, they are a different species, and grow slightly bigger. They are beautiful though. I have a flame red and he is awesome, very peaceful and not shy at all anymore, he likes to come and nibble my arms if i have to put my hand in the tank for something :)

    Pearl Gourami are indeed not a type of dwarf. They get to about 5 inches while dwarfs only get to about 3.5 inches.

    I had a flame and he was beautiful. I also Have a Neon blue who is pretty but not as colorful.

    Wow! I wish I could get one...
    How much are they because my LFS does not have any Dwarf Gouramis *sigh* and want to try a different shop but I am not quite sure of their prices and if they are any good.

    Oh thank you! I might have bought one by mistake as I thought they were :)

    Neon blue ones are most prone to Dwarf Gourami Disease !
