Wild 3 spot Gourami. A wee bit of a disaster. I've grown them on a bit before trying to breed them. The male blew a nest and invited the female over for for coffee and a movie :) unfortunately she wasn't impressed with his nest so she left. I couldn't blame her really, it was a bit of a pathetic nest. He got angry and beat her up leaving her in a mess. She died today after trying to mend her for a few days. I'll try again with the other pair when they are ready.

Sorry to hear this news.
Hopefully the other male will be more docile towards his female.

The other pair seem to be OK, but he's pretty crap at nest building as well. It's all down to lack of experience I would say, he'll get there eventually, but meanwhile I'm keeping a close eye on them.
