    Golden gouramis

    The second gourami looks like a dwarf gourami, red flame colour variant. It has a bit of blue in the dorsal fin which neither the honey nor thick lipped have.

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Hi everyone, I do not know what is happening, but the female is having troubles swimming now as well! She was a bit off yesterday already and I gave her a 10min bath. Right now she is in a new bath again, but I put a bit more salt in and will bath her a bit longer. I did not feed her...

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Thanks for your advice, Jan and James. I bought frozen peas and poured some boiling water over them. Then I let it sit for a while and squished the content out and gave small pieces to her. She did eat some, but she did not go mad over it. Her behaviour is good today. I did find her hide between...

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Hi everyone, you might think that I am only imagining things, but the female honey appears to be thicker on her left side now as well. It is not the swimbladder (like in the male) that is thicker but the front where her organs are. I got some epsom salt from the shop (without fragnance or...

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Hi both of you, thank you for your reply. He was in an aquarium saltbath this morning which did not help. I was then at work and only got back now to find him passed away. I am very surprised that he went so quickly (as I said, swimming normally and eating yesterday) and within a few hours...

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Hi thanks for your reply. I thought the temperature range for honey gouramis was 22 - 28. Seriously fish says 22 - 27. That would put 24 right into the range. I just got back from the LFS and unfortunately, the med stock is very small. I bought a herbal anti parasite med which can also be used...

    Sick Honey Gourami - Buoyancy troubles

    Hi everyone, I have a honey gourami in a 10 gallon with 6 galaxy rasboras. I noticed a week or two ago that he had a bit of a swollen swim bladder, but thought it was normal and I had just not noticed that it looked like that before. He was acting normal, eating and being very responsive when I...

    Bump or pimple on CPD

    Can do, thank you :) Do you think it might have been a parasite growing under the skin? If so, the bump should disappear now, right?

    Bump or pimple on CPD

    What should I check the plants and substrate for? For whatever fell off?

    Bump or pimple on CPD

    Thank you very much for your reply. It is incredibly difficult to see what it looks like, because the fish is very active, but I do not see any obvious fuzz. I also took a look at the other fish and there is nothing on them. It also seems as if whatever was coming off, fell off. There is now...

    Bump or pimple on CPD

    Hi everyone, I have a CPD that is having a strange pimple on his side. I have attached a picture, not the best quality, unfortunately. Those little buggers are swimming too fast for my camera. It is definitely sticking out from his side (and not a hole) and after today's water change it looks...

    Show me your Fish!

    Oh, nice! :) I must say, I am a bit jealous. I am trying to breed them right now, but have not gotten him into breeding condition yet.

    Show me your Fish!

    I only started keeping fish 6 months ago and what should I say... I am hooked. Your fish are all so cool, makes me want to buy more fish and more tanks haha. :) Here are my two (golden?) honey gouramis, a male (right) and female (left). The female is definitely my favourite. She comes to the...
