Hi there! New to the forum, thought I'd break in with a question.
I recently bought three dwarf gourami and two moonlight gourami from my local big als. I'm not positive on the sex of the dwarf grouami, I thought they were all male, and I don't have the slightest clue with the moonlight gourami, though they are still young.
Tonight I came home and found a mass of bubbles in the back of the tank behind the cover of some leaves from my anubias, where the water doesnt move much, mixed with some leaves seemingly cut from my other lighter plants. I've read a little about gourami breeding as I hoped to try it some day, and it seems to fit the description of a bubble nest. Also, one of the dwarf gourami appears to be guarding it, just sitting beneath it, and has chased away a couple of the moonlights.
My questions are as follows:
-does it sound like it's a bubble nest to you who have seen them before? I couldnt find any pictures or anything
-would they build one so soon after being introduced? it has been about three days since I brought them home
-do gourami ever make bubble nests if there are only males in the tank, or, fingers crossed, do I have a female and I just suck at telling the difference?
Found my camera, here are some pics of the nest itself.
