Gold Giant Gourami (Osphronemus goramy ‘gold’)

$22.99$279.99

The largest of the labyrinth fish species commonly known as Gourami, the true Giant Gourami 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. The gold or white form of this fish is similar to the albino form but lacks the distinctive red eyes. In the aquarium, they are hardy and undemanding but will need a suitably large tank to be kept successfully.
