how often should I feed my gourami's ? and the types of food I have available are tetra cichlid crisps and omega one blood worms

Ron G just realised I only have the clip of my male making a bubble nest, I didn't upload the mating eek
Beckie Eldridge
Beckie Eldridge - 3 years ago
Ron G my gourami have bred once since I got them. she was massive, at thought at one point could she explode? (I really don't think they can!)
it took him about three vigorous tries on her to get the eggs out, I think she was just so full of them.
I do have a couple of videos on my channel of the process.
Maybe she is naturally big bellied but cannot produce the eggs so the male sees her as a "pest" and the other female also? there whole aim to reproduce so they could possibly think she's a nuisance if she can't produce?
I'm absolutely no expert with gourami though
Ron G

Beckie Eldridge thanks and also one of my female gourami has had a plump belly for quite some time now I've seen them mate but never have released the eggs now the male and other female chases her around

Cool Gourami mix. I have seen alot of your videos and they were all on plants... I had no idea you had fish too. that's awsome. its hard to go to Aquarium shops for plants and not get side tracked by fish too ... or by other cool plants that you didn't go to the store to buy but ended up putting in the cart or box and taking home too. lol. I'm going to have to get caught up on your videos. :)

po dunc - 4 years ago
i have found that after fighting w/the basic pond snail explosions by taking them out manually,i leave some snails in to help clean the tank. but when they get large enough and they are high up on tank glass,i'll gently crush them against the glass w/my finger and when they fall to the bottom,my gouramis move in for the feast.i also have a few small orange color tetra that peck the snail meal instead of throwing out the snails,use them for feed.

po dunc
po dunc - 4 years ago
as for feeding your catfish.i had 2 long ago and i used the same food i used to catch channel cat when i went fishing.kroger and other stores can/may carry tiger shrimp(raw,never cooked)tails.they are green/greyish,w/shell and big.somewhat pricey but they can remain frozen for a long time if sealed to prevent freezer burn. i just cut 1 up into tiny parts but my cats would tear into it like a shark may try this food,if they don't like it,cook them up for yourself.if you want to eat them,soak in milk over night because they are heavy flavor..catfish love them.w/fish food cost,a bag of these shrimp for about $15-$17 would last quite a awhile.heck,the gouramis may like them to.

Actually pearl gourami are the most peaceful out of larger gouramis. If you get some they probably will do fine. Just watch out, they males can be aggressive. I have 2 female pearl gouramis and a male dwarf gourami, and they're doing fine.

I have 6 neon tetras and 2 gouramis in my 10 gallon currently. It's only temporary, I have a 55 getting setup. My gold and flame gourami are fighting .

Can you keep 2 dwarf gouramis and a male pearl together in a 30 gallon aquarium???? I already have a male honey and know that the male pearl will be able to be with the honey because of distant gouramis relation but will the two dwarfs fight if I keep them together or can I just get dense plants and hope for the best??? THANKS!
Kirsty M
Kirsty M - 5 years ago
+Payton Barry Are the dwarfs both males? It depends, if you have a lot of plantation/places for them to hide and not many other fish, you may be able to get away with it. One thing I've noticed is that they all have their own unique personalities and I've read so many articles from people that have had luck keeping many kinds of male gouramis together while others have had bad stories with deaths happening so it's kind of the luck of the draw. I have a 30 gallon myself with 1 male dwarf, 1 adolescent male pearl and one female pearl and they all get along for the most part. Good luck (:

Ryan Ehrgott2
Ryan Ehrgott2 - 5 years ago
I recently purchased a dwarf gourami as first shown in your video, but it was under the name neon blue dwarf gourami. I got 2, one is more powder blue (female)in my opinion, the other looks identical to that in your tank. I also bought a flame gourami. The difference in my neon male and flame is that the flame is half its body is bright reddish orange, whereas the neon has blue and orange with stripes. My point is, you said that yours was a flame? Did my pet store name them improperly, or are they basically the same thing? Do you know if they can breed if different sex? I also have 4 three spot gouramis, and they have done great for 2 years in the same tank. It's a huge tank like yours, lots of hiding areas though. Do you think they will become aggressive, or since it's been 2 years, am I in the clear?

That is the first mistake I made when I started a tank. I asked for advice at the pet store. I was so sick of my fish dieing and killing one another I was going to give up and sell my tank. But I started finding my own answers by reading a lot online. Now all my fish are going on 2 years old and big and beautiful :)

Hey Jacob ! Ive been going through your older videos, really cool to see your growth as aquarium expert. But yeah, I also rescued a Gourami from Animals & Things it closed down this year but man he was in bad shape. They had him in a tank with no moving water, no light, and was pale white.

 The super pale color was the only reason I actually saw him in the dark tank, looked dead. I saw it moving a bit and I decided to buy it, didn't even put up a fight being caught. They charged me $7 for it!!! And my receipt read Misc. fish since they didn't even know the species/type. I really didn't think he was going to make it, he laid on his side for about 2 weeks.So fortunately he did make it,and he's still alive turned out to be a pearl Gaurami and his colors really pop now, :D
idkanygoodnames - 6 years ago
My friend wants to give me a 55 gallon fish tank. I was wondering what types of fish you suggest. I want fish that are colorful. I would like a community tank with different size fish. I would also like to be able to put ghost shrimp in the tank with them. I was thinking gourami's or cichlids. I don't really want gold fish, because my friend has gold fish. I was also wondering if red tailed sharks are good with other fish. I've read stuff about some fish on the petsmart website, but I prefer to get opinions from people not trying to sell me something haha. I've never had a real fish tank before, so I hope I don't sound ignorant by asking this. Thank you for any help you can give.
William Beard
William Beard - 6 years ago
+idkanygoodnames the only thing with tetras is to be careful not to mix too many of the thin bodied ones with the long bodied ones in such large schools as you will have 

because the thin bodied ones are much faster and will eat all the food before the slower ones can get any

idkanygoodnames - 6 years ago
Thank you for the help. I think I'll get tetras like you said.
William Beard
William Beard - 6 years ago
55g is not a good beginner size I would start with a 15 g or a 20g first 

but if you are intent on 55 

I would keep tetras or platys first because of how easy they are 

in a 55g a school of corydoras would be perfect just get the same species as they wont school with other ones 

whatever you do do not start with cichlids 

sharks get massive
almost too big for even a 55g you would be dealing with a fish as large as your forearm

Gourami's are wonderful fish. I used to keep them 6 years ago (I was 9) and they lived and bred in an un-heated tank. I bought a Dwarf Gourami yesterday and straight away, he started swimming with the smaller fish in my tank. They have really nice personalities.

the "blue" gourami you have in there are called 3 spot gourami and will only get to about 4 inches big , and if you want blue colour gourami try opaline and moonlight gourami but watch out as gourami can be killers and overly dominant to tank mates.

my opaline guarami bullied the other one to death, they are the most violent guarami, that chasing, tail niping behaviour is both annoying to see and horrible on the victim. Dwarf guarami and paradise guarami's are best suited if you don't want bullying, my dad has only had one pair of guarami's that did not kill one another for years, and they were moonlights, every pair he has had since, the other has killed it, guarami's are nice but i'm staying away after seeing my one kill the other lol

Is there anything you would recommend to get rid of the odor of the tank?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated :)

Heyy i just wanted to let you know that the pictus catfish might eat the neon tetra. The catfish will eat anything that will fit in their mouth. When the lights go out and the fish like sleep the pictus will be awake because they are nocturnal and he might eat the neon. Just letting you know it's something to think about.

Hi! I have a fire dwarf gourami and want to get some of the powdered gouramis. I know they can be nippy and mean at times do what's a good number to get to limit the fighting I was thinking about getting different types to like neon blue and red like you have and the blue and a honey sunset or any other dwarf gourami thx
JacobsAquarium - 8 years ago
Yes they can be at times. But so far they aren't causing any damage to each other. I've noticed throughout the years, having more then three of the same species in a tank will promote them to get along. When there's to many fish to fight, they just give up lol. Thanks for watching friend :)

As I mentioned in my other videos, I sold them to a very experienced aquarist, to make room for the Gourami's I wanted.

I did want to go that route in the beginning. But I really didn't like the thought of regular old soil in my tank. I preferred to use Takashi Amano's products but at the time I didn't have the extra money. So I just bought the best planted tank substrate I could find at my local petsmart and its worked just fine for me. When I ad my co2 system, everything will really come alive. I'll post some some more update vids. Thanks for watching friend :)
