    Pearl Gourami

    Are these things hard to come by? I'm interested in them as possibly a more peaceful alternative to the blue/opaline breed. So far I can't find them anywhere locally though. Just wondered what others experience is.

    They are available more sporadically than the blue spot color morphs. I see them about every other month or so. Let your LFS know you're interested and ask them to call if they become available--most places are willing to do this.

    If you find them, get a male and female pair. My male chases her a bit, but won't hurt her. It was scary at first, but there are hiding spots and she took up residence at one end of the tank and he at the other where he sometime blows a bubble nest. I've had them almost 3 months. Sometimes they hang together and are gentle with each other which is really nice. Sometimes they bicker, and sometimes she'll chase him.
    They remind me of a married couple. At night, they really stand out under the canopy light. I recommend the pearl. Easy to keep, they eat flakes, sinker tabs, bloodworms, brine shrimp. A nice fish. You won't be disappointed.

    But I still haven't found what I'm looking for..
