Overview

Gourami's should be housed in a tank with adequate swimming space that is also equipped with plenty of hiding places. They will appreciate live plants as well. They can cohabitate with a wide variety of peaceful tankmates, though males can be somewhat territorial with each other. They will also spawn readily in the home aquarium. 

An omnivore, they will be healthiest if fed a diet that includes both vegetable matter and meaty foods. They will eat pellets, flakes, live and frozen preparations.
