Sometimes shy at first, but soon settles in. Prefers a well planted tank, also with some floating plants. Very popular, has been selectively bred into various brightly coloured strains. Males have more pointed fins and are much brighter coloured. They can sometimes be territorial to other male gouramis, so in a smaller tank it's recommended to keep a single male.
