    How about instead of a pin,because we're getting rather clustered up there,instead I'll merge it with the betta pinned article full of links and then alter the name to betta and gourami helpful links something and something :unsure: Sound good?

    Hey now...hey now. Let's not get carried away. :p

    Gouramis are great too though :wub: It's good to have somebody with an interest in them.I think a lot of members keep them,they're just less talked about because they live in communities so there's really not much to say unless they're sick...or being pests :lol: .But I think they're under rated.

    And quit calling us the betta people :rofl:

    SimonA: I'll try to get some pics up later today though getting them to stay still for photos requires lots of patience. :fish: :snap: :D

    I do agree that there needs to be more info about Gouramis in this section of the forum. I love Bettas and Gouramis equally so it's more just a case of making sure people have the basics on Gouramis too. :)

    I would have to agree with Wuv, a lot of folks on the forum own bettas and gouramis. I know a few of them do anyways, myself included. I think a pinned topic including both would be a good idea, rather than having two independent pinned topics.

    I'm a big gourami fan, and have been for a long time, but I have to admit that they are no longer as popular as they used to be. :-( I don't even see that many of them for sale at the lfs anymore.

    I think this is due to the fact that they are mostly tank raised in industrial type conditions. As a result, disease is common and some of the more interesting of the standard sized ones are hardly ever available.

    The popularity of the new colored dwarf gouramis has taken its toll too. The distributors, at least in my area, just do not stock the females, so a hobbyist cannot breed them at home.

    IMHO, this is a sad state of affairs! :/

    I have a question...Do bettas and gouramis get along in one tank?

    Also, how many male gouramis can I keep together in a 50 gallon community tank? Can't find any females. But the LFS were keeping the boys all together cramped in a tank, and they seemed to get along fine... :blink:
