Male Dwarf Gouramis are colorful and the females
are silver without much color. The original wild
Dwarf Gourami males had diagonal stripes alternating
in bright blue and red. Eventually fish farmers

Hello Tom. Thank you for sending us

Dwarf Gouramis. We need a picture of a male like
your with more of the red. Dwarf Gouramis vary in
color. Some are mostly red, others mostly blue,
and many with intermediate ratios of red and blue.

Quick question for you:
since it appears that all

color varieties that are now mostly red and other
varieties that are mostly blue.
So we have more choices,
but they are still the same species of fish, and

conditions in the aquarium are good for them.
