    I would say a minimum of a 6 foot 180 gallon for their life span, but the bigger the better. They get over a foot long so the 24 inch width of a standard 180 gallon is going to give them plenty of room to turn around. You could probably get away with a 6 foot 150 gallon, but its only 18 inches wide so that wouldn't give it much room to turn around once its full grown

    Eight feet would be heaven, six feet would be fine enough. If you have the money and space I'd spring for the eight footer, but if not, six is, as I said, fine enough.

    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.
