I never seen or thought a gourami could get bigger than an Oscar..I've only seen chocolate, dwarf and honey gouramis though. In my mental image they are small compared to oscars.
I was asking the employee at my lps
about putting a gourami in my tank, and he was like "OH NO DON'T DO THAT THEY ALL GET BIGGER THAN OSCARS BY A FEW INCHES TOO"...like he needed to call life alert or something..I kinda just was like "oh okay..."
How do people overcome these situations haha
