Dwarf Gourami originates in the waters of India and is not only beautiful but they can be particularly hardy as well. The male is more colorful while the females are less colorful. Usually the female is gray in appearance. There are a couple of colour varieties including the Blue and the Flame Red. They make a great addition to a fully cycled community tank and are easy to care for in general. Some hobbyists find that these gouramis tend to be a bit too aggressive with conspecifics and choose to keep one to a tank.
