Pearl Gourami

Pearl Gourami
Trichogaster Leeri

Length: 4.0"
Sex: There is noticeably more red in the body area on the male.
Feeding: Will eat flakes and various live foods.
Social Behaviour: Very peaceful and a good community fish.

Up Keep: Fish prefers a more shallow tank with lots of floating plants.
