Kissing Gourami 4-6cm
What the Kissing Gourami is missing in its coloring, it is making up in its interesting behavior. So, why was this kind named as kissing gourami? They stand in front of each other and swim slowly for some period of time and then for a short time their mouths meet. For observers, it looks like kissing.
Helostoma temminckii is widespread in freshwater ponds of South-East Asia: in most counties of Indochina and on some islands of Malay Archipelago (Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan). Besides the fish was introduced to Sri Lanka, Philippines, and New Guinea and in Columbia as well.
These species dwell in shallow areas of waters with thickly growing aquatic plants and slow water flow; lives in lakes, backwaters, ponds, bogs.
The fish are undemanding, but they need a roomy tank. Besides they become blusterous and territory dependent as they grow.
Due to this the fish is recommended to aquarists who already have some experience in fish keeping.
