AQUARIUM CARE: Like all gouramis, the moonlight 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. Nests are built from bublles under leaves and surface vegetation. The fry are very small and require infusoria as a first food.
