    I was out buying some doughnuts lol :drool: :lol:
    All gouramis are shy when you first introduce them. They will usually hide in the darkest corner of the aquarium or anywhere shady. I've never had a gourami that's not shy when I introduce them. After a month or two, they will get used to you quite quickly

    True, Dwarf Gouramis are more aggressive in general than Pearl Gouramis But when tank is not big enough for them, they can be just as cranky as Dwarf Gouramis. Pearls can be very aggressive when kept in very small tanks tanks and its not uncommon for them to kill other fish. When in large decent size tanks, they are amongst the most peaceful fish.

    I'e had a large 3 spot gourami in with a shoal of 10 beacons, 3 unknown tiny tetra and 4 cardinal tetra for several months. It ignores small fish, though it attacked other gourami, and hasn't eaten any of them
