Place of origin:Borneo, Malaysia, Sumatra
Feeding:Omnivorous and do best on a varied diet of quality flaked and pelleted foods along with brine shrimp, daphnia, brown worms, and blood worms. Live or frozen foods are needed to be fed in order to bring a mature fish into breeding condition.
Typical tank setup:Well planted with tall or floating plants shading the surface along with rockwork and bogwood/driftwood.
Breeding:This species breeds willingly. They are bubble nest builders and the males build their nests among plants on the surface of the aquarium. Minimizing surface water movement will help maintain the bubble nest. Lowering the water levels and raising the temperature can help trigger spawning. The male guards the nest, the eggs, and fry. Remove the female after spawning. Feed free swimming fry infusoria for 5-7 days and finely crushed flaked food and baby brine shrimp thereafter.
The Pearl Gourami are a peaceful community tank fish, but may chase other gourami type fish. Best if kept with fish that are of similar size and temperament, but they can also be kept with smaller schooling type fish, that are too large to be eaten. Males are best kept with 2-3 females.
Pearl Gouramis have a lot going for them in the home aquarium. They have intricate patterns and can survive in sub-ideal conditions.
