As with all Gouramis, the Dwarf Gourami must be allowed to breathe from the water's surface. The Dwarf Gourami has an overall iridescent glow to its body that is most prominent in males. The male tends to be a bright orange-red with turquoise blue vertical strips and the female tends to be a pale blue-gray with light yellow vertical stripes. This species is great for smaller tanks with ample amounts of vegetation and dark substrate.

The Dwarf Gourami does best in a well planted tank with peaceful fish. Ideal tankmates include other passive tankmates such as Mollies, Platies, and Guppies. Avoid boisterous and aggressive tankmates such as Tiger Barbs, Cichlids, andIt is recommended that the tank is located in a quiet location and that frequent water changes are performed to ensure good health.

    Nice fish, but...

    Posted by Justin Madeira on 20th Oct 2020

    My Dwarf Gourami came well packaged and in good health, but I wish that the page was a little clearer. It seems to be a flame dwarf gourami and not a neon or powder blue dwarf gourami as shown in the picture. The color form is listed as "Blue, orange" so I took that to mean both (i.e. a blue gourami, which has orange/red.) but what I received is solid soft orange with a silvered head, and no striping. Again, not a bad fish, and shipped well, looks healthy. Just not what I'd envisioned for the tank.
