AQUARIUM CARE: Like all gouramis, the pearl gourami is used to slow moving waters, often vegetation choked, where conditions are often dark, and its feelers become a necessity.
Tankmates should be calm, and occupy the lower levels.
BREEDING: This popular aquarium species is a typical bubble nest builder. Sexing adults is easy; males have a orange to red throat, and longer fin extensions. The fry are very small and require infusoria as a first food.
