Trichogaster Trichopterus common name gold gouramie is a colour variation of the blue gouramie.

They grow up to 15 cm / 6 inches fully grown. They are best kept in water parameters of PH range 6.5-8.0, and temperatures of 22-26 Celsius / 72-78° F.

Gold gouramies are said to be peaceful, however in our experience they do have a nasty side. We recommend not to mix them with small fish. They can become a little bossy so mixing with bigger community fish is better. They are best mixed in pairs, or groups. Sexing them is easy, males have a longer and pointed dorsal fin, whilst females have a shorter and more rounded dorsal fin.

They enjoy flake, pellets, and granular foods in there diet. Also a nice treat of freeze dried, frozen or live foods is good for them.
