Croaking Gourami Care Guide

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Provide a tank with a minimum of 10 gallons.
    • Ensure plenty of floating plants and cover, as Croaking Gouramis appreciate shaded areas.
    • Use a soft, sandy substrate to mimic their natural habitat.
  2. Water Conditions:

    • Maintain a temperature between 75-82°F (24-28°C).
    • Keep the pH level slightly acidic to neutral, around 6.0-7.0.
    • Ensure good water quality with regular water changes.
  3. Diet:

    • Offer a varied diet including high-quality flake or pellet food.
    • Supplement their diet with live or frozen foods like bloodworms, brine shrimp, or daphnia.
    • Croaking Gouramis are surface feeders, so ensure food floats or sinks slowly.
  4. Behavior:

    • Croaking Gouramis are peaceful and can be kept in groups.
    • They are known for their unique croaking sound produced by vibrating their swim bladders during courtship.
    • Ensure they have adequate space and hiding spots to reduce aggression.
  5. Breeding:

    • Provide a well-planted tank with floating plants for the male to build bubble nests.
    • The male will entice the female to spawn beneath the nest.
    • After spawning, remove the adults to prevent them from eating the eggs.
  6. Health:

    • Watch for signs of illness such as loss of appetite, lethargy, or abnormal behavior.
    • Quarantine new fish before introducing them to the main tank to prevent diseases.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Croaking Gouramis are peaceful and can be kept with other community fish of similar size.
    • Avoid keeping them with aggressive or fin-nipping species.
