    I have and doing a lot of research on dwarf gouramis and gouramis, but one thing I cant find is a diagram on their body parts.

    the main question I have now is, what are those antennae hanging down on them? is that their pelvic fins?

    thank you.

    They are pelvic fins.... Alot of people call them feelers... They are used for stabilization while hovering and swimming.... (pectorial fins)
