Hello Every1, after the death of my dwarf gourami last weekend I decided to go for another one, one problem they only sold them in pairs :/ so I have a male and a female now, pics will be along shortly I was gonna get a ram but they weren't for sale I'll put a link to my video on YouTube aswell, take a look at this fish and how big and friendly it is, amazing!
