    I've had this powder blue dwarf gourami for a few weeks in a 20G long tank, heavily planted, with one female neon dwarf gourami, two honey gouramis, and three ghost shrimp, and after one week he developed a lump just above a small red spot on his side that looked like an injury that would easily...

    Does my Dwarf Gourami need a buddy?

    Hey yall, I have had a dwarf gourami for the past 6-ish months. When I first purchased him, I also got a Columbian tetra. After a few days of them chasing each other, and learning that the tetra was a schooling fish, I returned him to the fish store, and now I have my gourami alone in a...

    Betta attacking new dwarf gourami

    Despite many a web page and the aquarium owner telling us it should be okay, our betta (red and blue) is attacking our new dwarf gourami (red and blue). Straight away the betta started flaring up, but it seemed like it was going to be fine. Until he started ramming and biting the very chill...

    Are Different Dwarf Gouramis Different Species?

    I went to my LFS the other day and they had a very pretty neon blue dwarf gourami and a dwarf flame gourami. I got both of them and, after the quarantine period, put them in my 55 gallon tank two days ago because I had heard that dwarf gouramis prefer to be in pairs. However, the dwarf flame...

    Euthanize starving dwarf gourami with pop eye?

    I'm a relatively new fish keeper & I need some advice. I have a dwarf gourami with one pop eye that I am almost sure that he got as a result of an altercation with another aggressive fish. (Other fish was frequently aggressive towards DG). No other fish has it; we do regular water changes; and...

    Why is my Dwarf Gourami chasing my Columbian tetra??

    Just a few days ago, I bought a powder blue dwarf gourami and a Columbian tetra. I am keeping just the two of them in a 10-gallon tank. When the dwarf gourami isn't hiding in the structures or in the corner, he's sneaking up on the Columbian tetra. He isn't fighting his tail, but he is poking...

    Dwarf Gourami vs. Paradise Fish

    I apologize if this question has been asked before. My paradise fish died earlier today. He was probably my favorite fish in the tank- he was super curious and would just swim directly in front of wherever I was looking in the tank like "hey, what are you doing? Why aren't you looking at *me?*"...

    Ich causing fin loss? Did I make a mistake in treatment?

    Moving a Dwarf Gourami

    I'm three-weeks new to this and definitely started the wrong way - the local big box pet store told me I could add fish 2-3 days after setting up my 20 gallon tank. I put in 3 guppies and 3 male dwarf Gouramis (they said they had to be in groups of three or more to school). So I now know that so...
