$39.99$129.99

The Red Tail Giant Gourami is a less common species of Giant Gourami which develops striking red caudal and dorsal fins as it matures.  As a true giant, it lives up to its name, reaching an adult size of over 20″ in many cases. Despite their large size, they are typically gentle giants, and are extremely personable “pet” fish that will beg for food and often learn to recognize their owners. They are hardy and undemanding but will need a suitably large tank to be kept successfully. In the wild, much of their diet consists of fruit and they will happily accept treats like strawberries and grapes in the aquarium.
