    Sad blue pearl dwarf gourami

    He's always been the healthiest one and the king of the tank. Suddenly, for the last couple of weeks he just hangs out in the corner close to the top of the tank. He barely eats. He'll swim around once in awhile but it's only for a couple minutes and he goes right back to the same exact spot...

    Pearl Gourami Tailfin Deformed?

    Just picked up a beautiful pearl gourami for my centerpiece a few days ago, but unfortunately just noticed her tailfin is quite different looking than images I found in my research. I'd like to know if this is indeed a deformation, and if so whether this might be a long-term health issue for her.

    Skinny Male Pearl Gourami

    So, I have been waiting to see my gourami for a few months, and the signs of sexual maturity have been approaching for a bit. It comes out that I have 2 males and 3 females based upon coloration and interactions. One of the males is starting to look thinner than the other gourami, and I am...

    Please help me decide which gourami

    Hey, I'm posting about my tank again. It's a 30 gallon long, planted. I have 20 neon tetras (10 are neon greens) and 4 endlers. Because of my last thread, I've decided to add gouramis, but trying to decide between 3-4 honey gouramis or 2 female pearl gouramis. I have a fluval 50 filter. My pH is...

    Split Ventral Fin on Gourami

    Went to feed tonight and was getting ready for the gourami in the qt tank to be moved into the main 55 in the morning. Noticed one of them had something wrong with one of it's ventral fins. It looks like the fin was split down the middle. Maybe the fin got sucked into the filter, or caught on...

    Fungus? Ich? Me Overreacting?

    I was taking update shots of my current QT tank, and noticed a couple of the pearl gourami have white on their fins. What do you guys think this is, and what can I do to treat it. I have aquarium salt and Paraguard on hand, and the petstore is open for another hour. The fish are all acting...

    Sick pearl gourami?

    Hi, my pearl gourami has very muted colors compared to the usual, he didn't even eat today and he is the dominant fish in the aquarium, he usually push the other pearl gouramis away from the food. I will make updates everyday on the situation. He is the only fish acting weird in the aquarium...

    First pearl gourami bubble nest?

    I just noticed this (picture below) at the surface of my aquarium, could this be the first attempt of my pearl gourami at doing a bubble nest?

    Would keeping only 2 males be an option?

    Hi, I posted on another thread that one of my female pearl gourami died last night due to bullying of my other pearl gourami. :(.The 2 males are now being very mean to the female so I think it might end up the same way as it did for the small female gourami that passed away. Would keeping 2...

    pearl gourami agressivity

    Hi, I got 2 pearl gourami this weekend. I think they are female but they are still very young so it is hard to tell. I have difficulty taking picture of them because they still hide when I come close to the tank but I will post pictures if I can so maybe someone can confirm they are female. I...

    Pearl gourami issues

    Hi, I made a thread not so long ago about my smallest of the 3 pearl gourami staying behind the filter and I tought everything came back to normal later that day. Actually it got worse, she's staying at the right cornor of the tank almost all day long and today I don't think she even ate so I...

    is she ok?? (pearl gourami acting weird)

    My pearl gourami (the smallest female) is acting weird she stays at the back with the flow of the filter. Could it be because she gets bullied and she feels safe there? It's not like there wasn't other places to hide... (picture below). Maybe she's just weird and likes the flow?

    2 questions (one about corys and the other one about pearl gourami)

    Hello, I have 6 bronze corys all about 1.5 inch and I was wondering if at this size they are already mature and able to breed. Also I have 3 Pearl gourami 1 male 2 female and I would like to have probably one or two more female. Do these kind of fish establish a hierarchy and then I can no...

    75g Tank Stocking
