Let me google that for you

Research means more than posting a thread sometimes. Plenty there to get you started.

Feed them well, keep up the water quality, not too much surface aggitation and some floating plants.... Of course you need a male and female.

As far as I know, DG's are in the very hard to breed section for home aquaria.

Actually they are pretty easy to spawn in the right set up.

Yep. The trouble most people have is trying to hang onto the notion that the slightly less colorful male they have is really a female. Afterall, that's what the LFS will tell them so it must be right.

Did you look through google at all? I just found this:

Tropical Fish: Breeding Blue Gourami

Looks like a great step by step guide.

Well, he is asking about the dwarf, which I am not sure is TOO different, but I found this site, which is pretty detailed.

Dwarf Gourami

True but the cup bubble nest trap thing I've seen in various gourami breeding tanks. Pretty funny watching a determined male try to make a bubble nest in an area with some flow. I was thinking about getting a pair a while ago but the quality of the stock is horrible in this area.

I can't even find females in my area, so I just have my one flame male who likes to pester the guppies.
