KEEPING DWARF GOURAMIS IN THE FRESHWATER TANK
Dwarf gouramis are primarily named for their small size as compared to other gourami species. These fish exhibit a bright blue background coloration with brilliant red or dark orange striping. Due to this patterning, the dwarf gourami is also sometimes referred to as the dwarf banded gourami. These fish are typically very peaceful in the community tank – they can even be a little bit shy. In certain situations, however, the dwarf gourami can become territorial, especially when kept in a tank that is too small. When kept in large tanks with other peaceful community species, however, the dwarf gourami usually doesn’t cause any problems.
