Lennie Posted April 3 Share Posted April 3 (edited) Hey guys, Yesterday, for my 50cube I got 3 sparkling gouramis. I have to confess, it was an impulsive buy, which I usually never go for. I have never seen them before so they are pretty rare to come by here. When I saw them, I was like, YOU ARE COMING HOME WITH ME! 😄 As I'm a big gourami fan in general. I watched videos and read care guides about them. Seems like everything I have is what they really enjoy, so that's great. Even tho they are some amazing nano fish and easy to care for, it seems like they are a bit rare and personal experiences are hard to come by. So I wanted to learn about some personal experiences from you. Those who have experience with sparkling gouramis, Could you please share your experience for the following questions: What's your group size? Currently I have 3 in a community tank setup. Should I increase the group size or is it good as it is? Have you ever faced any sort of agression between each other? If you ever had a chance to breed them? Sexing them seems to be a lil tricky, how important is it to have 1m:2f type of ratio. Do they get agressive later on if the ratio is not met? Do you have any tips to sex them? Rachel O Leary says it is really hard to sex them unless they get into their breeding dress as males get significantly brighter and longer finnage. On another video, it was mentioned that the organs look like the females and males and it is an easier way to determine. The female on left and male on right. But it seems quite hard irl :') Hope there are some peeps that enjoy this cute lil nano fish & would like to share some experience!
