This is my honey gourami, Bubbles. He is about a year and a half old. He got his name because he is a very prolific bubble nest builder! He always has a little nest somewhere in the tank.
Bubbles lives in a 20 gallon aquarium (which is about to get a massive re-scape, so please don't mind the blue background) with harlequin rasboras, cherry barbs, and a clown pleco.
This spoiled little gourami gets a variety of different foods. He gets Hikari micro pellets, Omega 1 kelp flakes (occasionally), Bug Bites tropical pellets, freeze dried bloodworms, frozen brine shrimp, and a pea once a week. He also enjoys nibbling at the plants and algae in his tank.
Bubbles is super friendly. If I stand in front of his tank, he will come right up to the glass and greet me. He's also very curious about anything going on around him, and will always investigate new things.
He's such a cute little fish and I really love him.
Thanks for reading!

This is my Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami named "SKY." I named him SKY due to his sky blue coloring. I have had him about 6 months now.

Sky lives with 3 Black Skirt Tetras, 1 Harlequin Rasbora (lone surviror), 2 Neon Tetra (survivors), 1 BN Pleco, and 1 Asian Fisherman in a 35 gallon tall Hex Tank.

He is very active , swimming in all areas of the tank. Sometimes he will go repeatedly up and down in the stream of bubbles from an air stone. When I come near the tank, he heads to the top of the tank hoping I will feed him. He gets fed New Life Spectrum flakes, occasionally freeze dried daphnia and bloodworms, and occasionally frozen brine shrimp.

If you want a beautiful looking fish, I highly recommend getting a Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami as long as you do your research and find that it is compatible with your present stocking and tank size.

This is my Pearl Gourami. He lives in a community 90L aquarium (25 gallons) with anubias, driftwood, other plants, and many different types of fish. He is a male, and shows that beautiful pearl coloration! Hope you like him. I sure do! Actually, I don't love him. I LOVE him
