Care Guide:

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Provide a tank with a minimum of 5 gallons.
    • Utilize densely planted areas and floating plants to mimic their natural habitat.
    • Use a soft, sandy substrate to create a comfortable environment.
  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.
    • Sparkling Gouramis are labyrinth fish, so they can breathe air from the water surface. Ensure there is space for them to access the surface for air.
  4. Behavior:

    • Sparkling Gouramis are peaceful and can be kept in groups.
    • Males may establish territories, so provide ample hiding spots to reduce aggression.
    • They appreciate calm, slow-moving water.
  5. Breeding:

    • Provide a densely 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:

    • Sparkling Gouramis are peaceful and can be kept with other small, peaceful community fish.
    • Avoid keeping them with larger or aggressive species.

Enjoy the serene beauty and tranquil nature of Sparkling Gouramis in your aquarium. With proper care, they will thrive and enchant all who observe them.
