Moonlight GouramiTrichogaster microlepis
The Moonlight gourami is an excellent hardy aquarium fish for beginners and gourami communities. The fish has a slightly timid nature when first introduced into a new environment but once settled, the fish is hardy and more active than some gouramies. Moonlights are adaptable and will thrive under a wide range of water conditions providing they are provided with plenty of vegetation and/or hiding spots. Apart from very small fish, Moonlights can be mixed with significantly smaller or quiet and peaceful larger fish, making them suitable for most community aquariums.
