dwarf gourami? #1
Anyone know if there are any other gourami species that look like this?

Original Image

Saw them in LFS today but in a different tank to the other dwarf gouramis. Just wanted to know if they are what I think they are.

A different variety of dwarf gourami. As these were in a different tank and not labelled, I was wondering whether these were also dwarfs or a different gourami species.

The one in the pic is the natural colour form of the DG (albeit very vibrant) - other variants are line bred (like your boy Cloud).

Ah ok, that makes sense. I was pretty sure it was DG but didn't know if there was something else with similar colours and markings. Cloud sadly passed away recently and I'm looking to replace him when things have settled down in the tank, hence I was having a look this morning.
