Second, is that the same Blue Gourami or two of them. if so are they both females? I really like them... debating on getting a pair if they work for you.
Also, Could you post a full front picture of the tank... interested to see the whole ensemble.
Thanks! You buy the plants, I'll come rescape it. lol Planting a tank can be addicting!
That is the same Blue Gourami, just different views. I tried putting two females together and the one harassed the other unmercifully to the point where I had to take her back to the pet store. Gouramis are very interesting fish with great personalities, but I've found that unless you get two (or you stick with small peaceful types like the sparkling gourami) with very shy personalities or you have a very large tank, it can
be very difficult to keep more than one gourami in a tank (regardless of whether they are male or female). They get along beautifully with other peaceful tankmates but can be very territorial towards each other. You should always have a back up plan when buying more than one gourami just incase they don't get along!
