    Hi. I've had many gouramis in the past and I don't think I've ever seen this. This gourami suddenly has a dark blue stripe extending down from his eye to his fin. It's the same bilaterally. Interestingly there has been a female in the tank for the last 3 days and I found a male dwarf gourami tankmate unexpectedly dead yesterday. Has anyone ever seen this?

    Thanks

    it's just colouration and nothing to worry about.

    Must have been the addition of the female. All is well
