    I also have a Dwarf Gourami and I absolutely LOVE him. He IS very agressive though, at least towards other lone, colorful fish that are close to his size. The only thing that would make them better would be if they could more readily be kept in numbers instead of one to a tank, or the occasional 2 to a tank for some lucky people.

    For some reason, I'm still having success with 3 of them in my 30 gal. go figure. I may move 1 or more to my 90 gal when it's finally up and running though. Just to see how they do in a bigger tank with even more hiding places. And I agree - I love mine too. Very pretty fish - both in shape and color.

    The Blood Parrot eggs do not hatch, they eventually turn white and get eaten. That doesn't stop the parrents from trying though! They've bitten me a couple times while I was doing tank maintenance.

    Apparently no one told THEM they couldn't raise kids

    Most people seem to really love their blood parrots - that's why I decided to get a pair. this will be a first for me. I'm looking forward to it. Any advice?

    I really love my BP's, they can be very friendly! I've got 2 in my 125g tank. When I put my hand up to the glass they come over and sey hello to me.

    When you first get your Blood Parrots, they are usually very shy. One of mine hid for nearly 3 months before she was comfertable. Now they are super fiendly and out all the time. Be patient with them, it may take a while for them to get used to you but once they do, you have a fiend for the next 10+ years.

    They enjoy each others company so it's good that you're getting more than one.

    I've ready many articles about them on the web, many stating how cruel it is to have a man made fish that can't close its mouth. They have a beak inside their mouth that opens and closes. I have never once seen mine have a problem eating. They are one of my most aggressive eaters.

    I've heard they can be shy so I'll have patience. Thanks for the info. Would love to see a photo of your tank (hint hint)

    Gorgeous fish! I can see why you enjoy it. I recognize some of the species but not all. You have a nice mix.
    curious about the red tail shark. How big is he and is he fully grown and how does he do with the rest of the tank. I love the looks of them.
