Gold Giant Gourami (Osphronemus goramy ‘gold’)

$19.99

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.

Scarlet Badis (Dario dario)

$5.99

A tiny but beautifully marked member of the Badis family, these peaceful, active fish have been popular in the aquarium hobby since their introduction decades ago. Originating in shallow, slow-moving waters in West Bengal, India, they tend to be found in dense aggregations among stands of aquatic plants, with each fish generally staking out its own territory among the vegetation. In the aquarium, they will do best in heavily planted tanks with ample cover and in groups of 5 or more. Because of their small adult size and shy nature, the Scarlet Badis or Scarlet Gem is best kept with similarly sized, extremely peaceful tankmates.

Chocolate Gourami (Sphaerichthys osphromenoides)

$9.99

A small, peaceful gourami species found in the blackwater peat swamps of Malaysia and Indonesia, the Chocolate Gourami has been popular in the aquarium hobby for decades due to its unique color pattern and social behavior. In the wild, it inhabits warm, highly acidic waters with pH as low as 4.0, and in the aquarium it will do best if kept in soft, slightly acidic water as well. The addition of tannins to the water by using Indian Almond Leaves or Bark is useful to help this species thrive.
