Female Dwarf Gourami

Post by Sixo »

Hi all, 

I have a friend looking to close down his tank and he's asking if I'll take his female dwarf gourami (single) but I'm a bit unsure with mixing her with my honeys. Are the females generally more peaceful than the boys? I know the males can be a menace.

They are. Do you have a pic to be sure it is a female ?

Will get him to send a photo. Do you think with it being a single female it's got a better chance of working?

He's managed to rehome it elsewhere but it had markings like this.
I may go back to dwarf gouramis again when my honeys have had their time, just for a something a little bigger.

Some females show this vague pattern

They're nowhere near as colourful as males but nice in their own way I think. Always helpful if they're less likely to go rogue and start going after everything that moves ?

[/quote]I agree. The lack of color is the cause they are hardly ordered and sold in the US.
A shame I'd say.
