This little gourami (in it’s different colour forms) is adored by aquarists across the world. A member of the Anabantoids, with the ability to breath atmospheric oxygen as well as dissolved oxygen.

This little Gourami is fairly durable and has long been recommended as a good choice for community tanks and beginners. It is excellent for the smaller aquarium as it is peaceful with everybody and almost shy. As long as the aquarium is properly set-up and maintained, this fish will thrive.

Species – Blue Dwarf Gourami - Trichogaster lalius

Current Size – 2cm - 3cm

Adult Length – 7cm

Temperature Range – 23 - 28°C

pH Range – 6.0 – 8.0

Special Requirements - They are relatively easy to keep and are very hardy once settle           

Tanks Mates and Compatibility – Non-threatening shoals of small, peaceful cyprinids such as the Harlequin Trigonostigma heteromorpha, many rasboras and some barbs therefore make excellent companions in the more modest set-up. Loaches including Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki or any of the various Pangio species are also good choices. Some of the currently popular freshwater shrimps such as the cherry shrimp Neocaridina denticulata can also work well in a planted tank. If geography is not an issue, many of the commonly available tetras, catfish (Corydoras and Otocinclus are particularly suitable) and smaller rainbowfish could also be added.

Feeding – It accepts most foods offered in the aquarium, and a good quality dried food is acceptable as the staple diet. Supplement this with regular meals of small live and frozen foods such as bloodworm for the fish to develop the best health and colouration.

    Received a pair of them today. They took the time to make sure they were oppositely sexed which is great. The male is actually bigger than what I had paid for which is actually nice of them. Their colours are simply beautiful and the ones I received are pretty much identical to the ones in the above picture. They were packed very professionally and the heat packs were still warm when they reached me. They were not stressed at all and began feeding and exploring about 10 minutes after being transferred to the tank. Settled well in the tank now.

    Arrived today (30/1/20). I was very impressed with the care taken in packaging, as I was a little nervous about the transit, but I needn't have worried. The stress levels must have been minimal, because he has settled into his new tank very well. He's totally peaceful with his tankmates (6 neon tetras, 4 peppered corys, plus shrimp and snails), and has been very inquisitive, especially around the java fern. I'm very happy and hopefully he is too.
