Male 3 Spot Gouramis can become aggressive. Some are perfect citizens. Keep an eye on them. Females are even known for it at times.

Blues are of course a color variety of 3 Spot.

Yeah, I had a powderblue gourami and he was a jerk to the flame gourami. When she died we called him Sid Vicious. RIP

That's because you had 2 males. Same species. DGs tend to fight each other, esp in smaller tanks.

A few have DGs get along, most have weaker ones killed or bullied into starvation.

No Iam certain I had a male and a female. They were both in a 55g. He was just jerk to everyone esp her. My 2 honey gourami (1 male, 1 female) get along very well. I think that's just because they are honey's.

Coursair I was very hesitant to purchase any more gourami at first. But they are so beautiful so I did a huge amount of research and found out about the honey gourami. By luck I found some young honey 's at my lfs and purchased 2. These guys are buddies it's so funny.

Honey Gs are such nice fish. I saw a pair in full breeding colors once. The male was spectacular. But the store would not sell them. They were display only and they were hoping they'd breed.

My honey's start to change in color, they do a spawning dance, build a bubble nest, and then....nothing.
