A very popular species, the Gourami is selectively bred into several colour forms (blue being the original form). They prefer a well planted tank, and males may build bubble-nests if floating plants are present. Males tend to develop longer dorsal and anal fins.

They can be territorial with each other, so it is recommended to only get a single Gourami, or a group of 3+ depending on your tank size.
