Lavender Gourami are actually color variations of the same species. They originate from South East Asia, and are ‘labyrinth’ fish (breathe air directly); make sure to leave some airspace between water and tank hood. As they grow older they can become territorial, so housing more than one requires a bigger aquarium; they cannot ever be mixed with smaller (dwarf) gourami varieties. Otherwise they are fairly compatible with common varieties of tetras, rainbows, smaller cichlids, barbs & cory cats. They are quite hardy and are not picky eaters.
