"the dwarf gourami is a very interesting looking fish, probably the first fish that catches your eye at a fish store, and though you are tempted to buy it there are a few things to look out for. gouramies, like bettas, catch disease very easily so one thing you should do before buying them is make sure the tank you are going to put them in is very clear. give them good filtration and plenty of hiding spots. before you decide to buy them, always check the tank at the store. if the tank is dirty or if there is any dead fish there don't buy them. they are a labyrinth fish so no airpump is needed. you should have a heater, the perfect temperature for these guys is 77 degrees. they will hide for the first few days, whether it be behind a plant or in a cave and are slow movers. they are best kept with tetras, guppies, and other slow movers. they should be kept in singles or in groups of 4 or more, if kept in 2 or 3 the dominant one will make the others hide in a corner all day. they love freeze-dried brine shrimp and blood worms. they are a very good fish, just watch out for fungal infections. that seems to be the biggest illness with these fish."
