Hi everyone,
I went to Seahorse in Dublin on Saturday and bought a pair of Trichogaster fasciata (Indian or banded Gourami). We put them in a 24" tank to let them settle. Weere surprised that the male, on Sunday, started making a nest., but he was so interested in chasing the female, it kept disintegrating. But this morning he's made a perfect nest and has spent all day under it.

Best of luck with them Roisin.
Keep us updated on how you get on with these.
You will have to get your Dad to get you some more tanks to house all your fry :-)

SeaHorse had some nice specimens in.

These are awesome fish Roisin................and great to see you got some bubbles.

If you fancy breeding them then I did an article here somewhere on how to get the best of the breeding of bubblenest building gourami.

That's Dads favourite fish, although he says he doesn't like the coloured ones, so he is waiting on some wild 3-spots arriving. They are nice.

If they are breeding and it sounds like they are keep a very close eye on them...The male might start beating up the female (possibly even kill her) Just be aware that you might have to seperate them...

They are beautiful fish btw...

Best of luck with the new arrivals!
