Male Dwarf Bluecoral Gourami 4cm

The dwarf gourami is a peaceful and shy fish. If you have a pair of them, the two fish will swim together. Dwarf gouramis are considered labyrinth fish, which means they breathe straight from the air with a lung-like labyrinth organ and need to have access to the water's surface.

Dwarf gouramis are well suited to smaller aquariums as well as community aquariums because of their peaceful nature. They should not be kept with very large or aggressive fish. Gouramis can be skittish when subjected to noise and should be kept in a quiet location. Provide plenty of vegetation, including floating plants that cover part of the surface of the water. The optimum pH is in the neutral range, and water hardness should be 4 to 10 dGH. The ideal water temperature is 25 C. 

Gouramis are peaceful fish that do well in most community aquaria. They require a tank that is 40 litres or larger. They are usually found swimming on the middle to top regions of the aquarium. This is not surprising since the Gourami is a labyrinth fish. That is, Gouramis can breathe oxygen from the air through their Labyrinth (organ) (like the Betta) if necessary. It is important, therefore that the surface of the water be exposed to fresh air. This is usually accomplished by using a hood that allows air ventilation. If you are using good air pumps, this is not always needed, since the air pumps will refresh the air above the water.
