Pearl GouramiTrichogaster leerii
The Pearl Gourami is one of the most commonly available and popular gouramies and is an excellent aquarium fish. Pearl Gouramies are hardy, peaceful, adaptable and beautifully marked and can be mixed with almost any other peaceful fish. Boisterous or aggressive fish should be avoided as this will result in the Pearl Gourami hiding away and refusing to eat. Males may occasionally fight and if kept in small numbers (4 or less) a male may become a dominant bully. To avoid this, keep only females or preferably, keep a larger group. Provide open swimming spaces and plenty of hiding spots amongst plants.
