Sparkling Gourami (Trichopsis pumila)


A colorful and active species of pygmy Gourami native to much of Southeast Asia, the Sparkling Gourami is found in a wide range of shallow water habitats, from acidic blackwater swamps to quiet slow-moving clearwater creeks, usually found close to stands of aquatic plants or submerged vegetation. In the aquarium, they are an ideal resident of nano planted tanks, they are best kept in groups of 5 or more and make perfect tankmates for many of the popular species of microrasbora found throughout Southeast Asia in similar habitats.
