Trichopsis vittata
Croaking gourami
breeding notes

BREEDING: A typical bubble nester; in a still tank the male will build a nest at the water's surface; after egg laying the male will place eggs into the nest which the pair will guard. Once the fry are free-swimming (around 4-5 days after laying) parental care will end. Young are typically too small to take newly hatched Artemia immediately and must be allowed a few days on paramoecium before moving on to the shrimp.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
