Freshwater Gourami Fish

Native to still or slowly moving waters in Indonesia, the freshwater Gourami feels most at home in a heavily planted aquarium. Sturdy vegetation such as Java Fern and Vallisneria are excellent choices. Although it makes a beautiful addition to a community tank don't be surprised if it hides regularly. Even under ideal conditions this is a fish that tends to be timid. It should be kept only with non-aggressive fish.
