    I've been wanting to keep dwarf gourami for a long time, and right now I have an empty cycled planted tank. I've been looking at different fish, and I really would like to keep dwarf gourami, however I don't want to put them in a tank that is too small. How many Dwarf gourami, if any, should I put in my tank?

    I'm afraid the answer is none. Dwarf gouramis need a tank bigger than 10 gallons; a tank that has at least a 24 x 12 inch footprint.
    This species is often sold as a pair, but male dwarf gouramis can be very aggressive towards females, so females need plenty of space and hiding places to escape the attentions of a male.


    Dwarf gouramis also suffer from the incurable dwarf gourami disease. I would not consider buying these fish at all unless you know the breeder, or the shop can definitely tell you who they came from.
