I was very worried he would aggressively be aggressive towards my Opal but they're actually quite fond of each other. I've never seen them quarrel, the worst thing I've seen is flaring.

Very nice looking fish.

My daughter just adopted a couple of fish and one was an Opaline, named Tiger! Because of the stripes. It lives with a Dwarf Gourami and it seems they never bother each other. Also I had one for a long time (it was about 7 or 8 years old when it died) and it lived with a Pearl Gourami (and a Betta for a few months) and they were good together. Depends on the fish I guess.

I've been wanting a paradise gourami for a whole now. I am kind of doing a gourami tank. So far a have an Opaline, gold, snakeskin, and a kissing. I really love the pearls, platinums, and the paradise gouramis as well. But your Opaline is great looking

Thanks but unfortunately that 30 gallon and its fish are no longer with us. Quite a while ago the heater broke in the tank and torched all 12 Serpae Tetras and all but two of my Peacocks. I had gotten two successful breeds out of them and almost three but before anything happened again the heater broke.

If you're having bad luck go read my profile on them in the fish profile section

Thanks Autumn! Gouramis really do vary a bit, my old Pearl was always grumpy and never really liked anyone lol. He didn't go nuts but he just always seemed like he was in a bad mood.

Thanks! I'd keep an eye on the Kissing Gourami as he grows, he can get a lot bigger than the others! Good luck on the tank though!

Thanks! I do love Gouramis, always have. Their size and color have always intrigued me.

I had one Pearl that killed one other Pearl Gourami and was trying to kill this present one, so I gave it to my friend who had a semi-aggressive tank and he minded his manners after that, no one to bully.

This present one is sweet, gentle and peaceful. Very Zen.

Yeah my Paradise is very gentle. The Pearl always held a grudge to my Paradise, good thing he learned to keep away from him.
My Tiger Barbs were even scared of the Pearl! Never once came near the guy lol.
