I have a brace of female Dwarf Gourami put aside for me.
Both are allegedly Trichogaster lalius.
Once is the typical Dwarf Gourami female, a shiny-ish silver, with the suggestion of stripes.
I say allegedly, because the second, which is slightly smaller, is a shinier silver, with no striping visible and a definite orange colouration to the lower edge of her anal fin.
I'm thinking she's just a slight 'morph' of the original...unless anyone knows different.

(Picture to follow).

Lovely looking fish there Bruce!
I thing DG are great fish, but I have bad experiences in the past with the old dwarf gourami disease and it’s put me off them. This was a number of years ago though.

I assume you will be updating your excellent journal with their introduction? In which case I will follow with interest!

I'm always updating the journal, so yes.
