"Being familiar with other tropical freshwater fish we stumbled upon what proved to be an excellent deal at a local market. In a container of water with a number of other fish were nine assorted 1 inch gouramis 2 Gold M/F 2 threespot M/F 2 Platinum M/F 2 Pearls M/F and one Female Opaline. We put all these in one 3 foot tank. 2 months later we needed to remove the golds(new 3' tank) as they had outgrown their tankmates and the male was beating up all the others. Next the 3spots and Opaline had to go(New tank 4'). The male 3 spot enjoyed being on his own and began preparations to build his nest. His nest never had any bubbles though he did try and eventually mated with both females over about 4 days. We thought no nest = no fry. Boy were we wrong !! Needing glasses to see we noticed little specks floating around and were amazed to see hundreds of babies at the freeswimming stage. All adult fish removed(new 4'tank) and now we have a healthy family of about 30 well developed fry. We have decided to call all the boys Nemo :O)some more opalines are sure to come from these we hope."
