Gourami and Paradise
COVID-19 Status - We are pleased to say that the couriers are now back to a normal level with 3 delivery days per week. We are still dealing with a large number of orders and so delivery is likely to be approximately a week after placing the order. Very sorry for the delay but we are working as fast as we can!
Gouramis and Paradise are all classified as 'Labyrinth' fish and they are characterised by their abilty to breath air. To do this, they have an auxiliary breathing apparatus called a labyrinth organ.
They like a well planted aquarium with access to the surface so that they can breath. Some of the smaller Gourami can make excellent community fish, although they can become territorial, especially during breeding.
