Chocolate GouramiSphaerichthys osphromenoides
The Chocolate gourami is an attractive little fish with a delicate appearance that often entices the fishkeeper to purchase. Although they are very peaceful, Chocolate Gouramies are also very delicate and need quite specific water and aquarium conditions so are best left to experienced aquarists. The aquarium should contain areas of dense vegetation and have good filtration and overall water quality. Soft water is essential for long-term health and strong treatments should be avoided.
