Croaking Gourami Tropical Fish Learn all about the Croaking Gourami's feeding habits and food types, its behaviour, its origins, its natural habitats, is it male or female, breeding advice and information, suitable tank mates, its sizing and growth range, minimum tank size, water PH and more. Use our fish community creator tool to plan your tank set up and ensure that the Croaking Gourami is the right fish for your aquarium.

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
