Gourami Blue/Opaline

The Blue Gourami is an aquarium strain of the Three Spot Gourami, very similar in appearance to the popular Gold Gourami, except in a lovely platinum-white version. One of the hardiest of the gouramies, they are not fussy about water conditions or diet, even tolerating slightly cooler temperatures (18-20 C). Both sexes are very similar in appearance; mature males have longer more pointed dorsal fins. Maximum size is 10-12cm. 

Gouramis and Anabantids are attractive aquarium fish. Gouramis live for about four years but with proper care can live longer. 

Gouramis are peaceful fish that do well in most community aquaria. They require a tank that is 40 litres or larger. They are usually found swimming on the middle to top regions of the aquarium. This is not surprising since the Gourami is a labyrinth fish. That is, Gouramis can breathe oxygen from the air through their Labyrinth (organ) (like the Betta) if necessary. It is important, therefore that the surface of the water be exposed to fresh air. This is usually accomplished by using a hood that allows air ventilation. If you are using good air pumps, this is not always needed, since the air pumps will refresh the air above the water. 

The aquarium should be heavily planted and have at least part of the surface covered with floating plants. A darker substrate will help show-off the gourami's colors, and peat filtration is recommended. Gouramis should not be kept with large, aggressive fish, but are compatible with other small, peaceful fish as well as with fellow gouramis. Loud noises often scare them, so the tank should be in a quiet area. Regular water changes are a must. 

Gouramis are tolerant of fairly high temperature.
