Saw my gourami laying on the gravel. Last night he was just fine but today he’s looking like he might die. Is there any possible way I could save him? He won’t move even when I poke him or try to give him food. His symptoms are just heavy breathing and he’s really lethargic.

I am so sorry about this, but in my opinion there is nothing that you can do to save him. Dwarf Gourami being one of the most popular fish in the aquarium industry are over breed, with weak immune systems. I have tried two different dwarf gourami in the past and both died very early. So I stopped keeping them. Try honey gourami, these seem to have a better reputation in the industry than dwarf gourami.

It might be DGD. (Dwarf Gourami Disease)

If so, there is no cure. :(

Sorry for the loss.

Avoid dwarf gouramis in the future, for reasons explained above.
