The Croaking Gourami is a beautiful little fish which is ideal for small, planted aquaria stocked with other small and peaceful fish. Initially the fish can be a little timid but will soon become more confident and eventually enquisitive of their surroundings, if kept in the right environment. Aggressive or boisterous tankmates should be avoided. The fish may make 'croaking' noises
