He entered his ram in place #2 instead, guess he decided against the gourami although it is an excellent specimen!!

That's a beautiful Pearl G Reddsam, you should enter that one next month.
 
Try using lower light, or specifically diffused light to make the colors stand out more naturally.  Too much light can make the colors seem as if they're on an operating table, taking away the "glow."  That particular male has a nice shape and he's still very young, wait 'til he's more mature and he develops the fringes on his fins!

From your image, some basic cropping can turn a "meh" image into an IOTM ?

  For some reason I'm really drawn to my own cropping of your picture. I'd totally vote for it.
 
It's just so...alluring.
