    My Name: Ruskull

    My Gourami: Opaline Gourami female named "Opaline"

    Tankmates of My Gourami: (2) Pearl Gouramis (6) Von Rio Flame Tetras (5) Lemon Tetras (6) Cherry Barbs (1) Bristlenose Pleco Female

    Harmony in tank: Pretty good, the Opaline chases the male Pearl but doesn't mess with the female Pearl. She rules the tank but she's larger than the male Pearl at the moment.

    I Feed: Omega One Flake, Tetra Flake, Algae Wafers, Bottom Feeder Pellets, Frozen Bloodworms, Frozen Brine Shrimp

    My water temp: 78.3 degrees F

    My Water pH: 7.0 - 7.2

    I have bred My Fish: Not Yet

    Number of eggs: N/A

    Diseases/Ilnesses experienced: She had a pinkish 1/4 inch long raised line on one side near her dorsal fin. Also had one feeler get all short & white.

    How I treated the disease/Illness: Seachem Metronidazole according to dosage on package. Also used Kordon rid fungus

    Current age of Gouramie: Young, maybe 1-2 years old. I had her for 4 months.

    Other points: She's currently the alpha female and she chases the male Pearl sometimes but the female Pearl, who is the largest, isn't afraid of her & the Opaline generally doesn't mess with her.

    Position in tank: All over the tank

    My Gouramie: Pearl Gourami female named "Sadie"

    Tankmates of My Gourami: (1) Male Pearl Gourami (1) Opaline Gourami (6) Von Rio Flame Tetras (5) Lemon Tetras (6) Cherry Barbs (1) Bristlenose Pleco Female

    Harmony in tank: Pretty good, the Opaline chases the male Pearl but doesn't mess with the female Pearl. Sometimes the female Pearl chills out near the bottom behind some plants and the male hunts for her. I think it's more of a game than actual aggression since he really doesn't hurt her. He does lightly bite at her but I've never seen any damage.

    I Feed: Omega One Flake, Tetra Flake, Algae Wafers, Bottom Feeder Pellets, Frozen Bloodworms, Frozen Brine Shrimp

    My water temp: 78.3 degrees F

    My Water pH: 7.0 - 7.2

    I have bred My Fish: Not Yet

    Number of eggs: N/A

    Diseases/Ilnesses experienced: She had a pinkish white bump on her forehead.

    How I treated the disease/Illness: Seachem Metronidazole according to dosage on package. Also used Kordon rid fungus

    Current age of Gouramie: Young, maybe 2 years old. I've had her for 3 months.

    Other points: She's the most mellow fish in the tank. She's also the largest but most docile.

    Position in tank: All over the tank, sometimes hides in plants near the bottom front corner. She's the least afraid of me and will almost eat from my hand.

    My Gouramie: Pearl Gourami male named "King Leeri"

    Tankmates of My Gourami: (1) Female Pearl Gourami (1) Opaline Gourami (6) Von Rio Flame Tetras (5) Lemon Tetras (6) Cherry Barbs (1) Bristlenose Pleco Female

    Harmony in tank: Pretty good, the Opaline chases the male Pearl but doesn't mess with the female Pearl. Sometimes the female Pearl chills out near the bottom behind some plants and the male hunts for her. I think it's more of a game than actual aggression since he really doesn't hurt her. He does lightly bite at her but I've never seen any damage. He's the smallest Gourami in the tank & he's starting to chase the female Opaline back sometimes.

    I Feed: Omega One Flake, Tetra Flake, Algae Wafers, Bottom Feeder Pellets, Frozen Bloodworms, Frozen Brine Shrimp

    My water temp: 78.3 degrees F

    My Water pH: 7.0 - 7.2

    My water temp: 78-79 degrees F

    Tankmates of My Gourami: 9 Pink Jewel Tetras, 2 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Peacock Goby, Unknown amount of cherry shrimp, 2 Amano, I red crystal shrimp

    Harmony in tank: Incredibly peaceful and indifferent to other fish, unless its feeding time. Then they become a little more shy.

    I Feed: New Life Spectrum +Thera-A, Freeze-Dried Brine Shrimp, Frozen Bloodworm, Algae Tab, occasional pea or lettuce

    My water temp: 78 degrees in the day, 76 at night

    My Water pH: A solid 7.6

    I have bred My Fish: Not Yet :sad:

    Number of eggs: N/A

    Diseases/Ilnesses experienced: None so far

    How I treated the disease/Illness: N/A

    Current age of Gourami: Tiny when purchased, perhaps under a year old

    Other points: Active when it wants to be, hidden like a ninja otherwise. Likes to court by circleing each other like sharks. When circling, is possible to hear "chirping" sounds like a little baby bird. Very smart fish, I've trained them to eat food from a cup and "bottle-feed" them with a syringe filled with tank water and food.

    Position in tank: Everywhere

    Videos
    The first pair I bought - (I actually bought 6 at once, then realized they did not like each other, so I returned 4 of them and left only a pair)

    Spawning under the bubble nest




    The building of the bubble nest (before I returned the other 4)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxgp7Ipw8nk

    At 8-week-old(time of this video). The only two survived fry (the siblings don't like each other) They started to show aggression as early as 4 weeks old while they didn't even look like fish. The male just started to show color at the time I took this video. I separated the two shortly after into two different tanks.


    The female is the boss of a 10 gallon planted tank, and she has some personality... which she would always spit water at me whenever I open the top panel.

    The male is the boss of the 40 gallon planted community tank. He often chase after the German Blue Ram and only the German Blue Ram. He looks just like his daddy.
    This video isn't dedicated to him though... but he is shown at the beginning

    Other points of interest: Bows up her fins and rushes the front of the tank if I pick up the dog so he can see the tank. Nibbles my finger when I am testing. Knows if the hatch comes open it's feeding time and waits for me. If the lid comes off, 'Poo! Dad's messing with my house again!' and she hides out in her sleeping spot.

    Position in tank: Roams about. Tucks away in one corner mongst the plants to sleep. Tends to follow the corys looking for any nibbles they might miss.

    My Gourami: Golden Honey Gourami Male named "King Bully" but he was sold to me as a Dwarf Gourami. :rolleyes: Now that he's matured I think he might be a Thick Lipped Gourami because of the size of his lips, the coloration, and the overall size at 3 inches.

    Tankmates of My Gourami: (1) Bolivian Ram Male (1) Marigold Variatus Platy Male (5) Glowlight Tetras (4) Fancy Guppies (8) Trilineatus Corydoras (1) Bristlenose Pleco Female

    My water temp: 76-77 degrees F

    My Water pH: 6.8 last time I checked but it does vary a bit

    I have bred My Fish: Not Yet

    Number of eggs: N/A

    How I treated the disease/Illness: N/A

    Current age of Gourami: Young, maybe 1 and a half years old. I've had him for about 6 months or so

    Other points: Medium activity level when compared to other Gouramis I've had. Very Aggressive for a Honey Gourami. He bullied his brother so much that I had to relocate the brother (Listed in another post)

    My Gouramie: Pearl Gourami x 16
    Tankmates of My Gouramie: Harlequins, Pleco, Mollies
    Harmony in tank: Zero Biting, Feeding Frenzy amongst Pearls, no damage.
    I Feed: tetramin flakes, algae discs two variants.
    My water temp: 78*
    My Water pH: 7.3 slightly raised from introducing 10 new members to the tank.
    I have bred My Fish: N/A
    Number of eggs: N/A
    Diseases/Illnesses experienced: N/A
    How I treated the disease/Illness: N/A
    Current age of Gouramie: 1.5 years.
    Other points of interest I have observed: I started this 55g tank with a Dwarf Gourami, 2 Kissing Gouramis, two corydorras, 2 Swordtails, 2 Gold Gouramis and a Pleco. Despite the concern of starting a cycle with a Pleco, the Kissing Gouramis achieved dominance in the tank and began attacking the Gold Gouramis. I had owned Kissing Gouramis in the past, had a wonderful experience with them and was surprised to see this aggression. I returned the two Gold and two Kissing Gouramis for exchange of assorted fish smaller than the Dwarf. (The Shop Owner was amazed to hear such a tale, and as of last week the pair are still doing great at the store almost three times their size in my possession.) Unfortunately, the attacks on the Dwarf were irreparable and the male was lost along with the injured corys. The Swordtails lasted until they died of terror of the Pearl Gouramis. They were not bullied from, nor fin nipped by the Pearl Gouramis. Both broad water testing and visually inspecting each fish for disease revealed nothing out of the norm. I can only figure having been conditioned to the attacks from the Kissing Pair that they stayed true to their instinct refusing to come near the Pearls. As for the Pearl Gouramis themselves, they are absolutely amazing and anticipate feeding similar to Cichlids from people approaching their tanks. They will headbutt the Pleco if a distraction algae wafer isn't placed into the tank during feeding in competition for the algae disc(s). The Pleco will return the aggression with an even broader head(butt). Quite Comical. No visual damage to fins, scales.
    Position in tank: Surface for bubble nest creating, Mid Level for exploration and Socializing, Bottom level only when by plants and driftwood.
