New gourami

Got a new blue gourami yesterday. I was a little iffy on him while he was in the store, but he has colored up very nicely since then. I'm actually really impressed with how nice he looks so I thought he should be shared

It's funny watching him go around and feel everything with his fins, my last gourami never did that. This guy is about 3 inches long at the moment, I can't wait until he hits max size.

Yeah I have an almost full grown Opaline and he does the same thing! It's sorta funny to watch him, he's very curious about the going-ons inside and outside the tank.

I've got a 7 inch Snakeskin. Not as bright as the blue when she colors up but still looks great when she shows her stripes.

I have 2 honey gourami (which are smaller). They are the best they act like brother and sister. I think they are never going to spawn. They are much less aggressive than my last gourami.
