My New Gourami!!!!

Well I'm normally not one to show off my fish much but I gotta show this guy off! He's an incredibly gorgeous Opaline (I think) gourami! I've never ever seen an Opaline with THIS much color! Just got him today, he's still pretty young, can't wait to see him at his full length!
Side Note: If it ain't an Opaline Gourami please tell me, it looks like one but man I've never seen one like this! Click image for larger version

Thanks! He's toned down quite a lot, but he's still my center piece beauty though! If you're tanks big enough and his roommates would be nice to him you should get one! I love mine, not too much for personality but he sure does add some flare. Here he is today.... Click image for larger version

very nice fish. If I had an extra tank running I would get a gourami. They are beauties.

Nice eye! Yes it is, this was one of my first fish from my old 30. I moved him, and a few others (Tiger Barbs, Rainbow Shark and Golden Wonder Killi) to the 60 so I could try my hand at breeding Peacock Gudgeons.
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.

let me know how the peacock gudgeon breeding goes. I'm having poor luck on that front.
