Pearl Gouramis are one of the very nicest Gourami species and one of the very best fish for aquariums. They are very mild tempered. They
develop beautiful pearly spots and subtle colors. When they breed the males chest is covered with a brilliant dark orange area.
Eventually an aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water, an
power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4-inch of
gravel, and an
heater adjusted to between 70 and 82 degrees F. Click
here for more about warm water aquariums.
Pearl Gouramis do well on a diet of floating flake food plus some
dried blood worms, which
are actually mosquito
larvae, and an occasional treat of live Black Worms and live or frozen brine shrimp. Click

feeding fish. I feed these fish a few Black Worms every other day.
