    Whats your favourite, and why??


    I love pearls, as they are easy to keep and breed, as well as being a good community fish. :good:

    While I do love pearls for breeding reasons, My fav is the croaking gourami, Trichopsis pumila. I just think it is a gorgeous, docile gourami.

    I'm torn between pearls and Indian/banded gourami. I have an Indian boy in my community tank and he is lovely.

    The dwarf in my picture. I own 3 dwarfs and 2 pearls, but he is definitively the most active, and most handsome.

    My dwarf gourami. Brilliant

    Never kept any other sort, so I can't really compare.
    I had an old pair for at lest two years. inseprable, they were. He started to look old and we know he was going. We also knew that if he died, she would be lost without him. We were right. She died a few days later. I can honestly say that it was quite upsetting.
    They really do have personallities of their own. They don't only act upon inate behaviour.

    That's a really really tough one, as gouramis are probably my second favorite fish (after loaches). That said, while there are good things to be said about pearls, moonlights, true gouramis, dwarfs, honeys, and sparkiling, my favorite is probably the ubiqitous blue gourami in the Opaline color morph. They're big, but not too big, aggressive but not too aggressive, colorful without being cartoonish, and they have definite personality. I found pearls to be much too timid for my liking, and as gorgeous as moonlights are, I understand they are even more timid.

    Pearl gourami for sure. Especially the males since they have such nice long fins and colourations!!!

    I'd have to say either Opaline or Moonlight, so pretty when they're big!

    My favorite are chocolates and licorice. I have never owned licorice before, but they look pretty.
