Woke up to a bubblenest!

Came downstairs this morning to find a bunch of bubbles in a corner of my tank, looks like one of the gourami was trying to breed. I guess this is a good thing because it means they're quite happy.

Should I just leave it be, or should I suck it out or scoop it off or..?

Now I know my blue gourami is for sure a female though

Not much you can do really. If he's happy he'll just make anther one.

Good luck with the little ones and good to hear about happy fish!

I don't mean to get your hopes down or anything but sometimes they will do that without a female present.
I'm guessing the flame gourami is a dwarf, yes?
Is this blue gourami a dwarf as well? If they aren't the same species, they won't breed together.
