The Dwarf is a strange little book written by a Swedish Nobel Prize winner some time during WWII. Its a rather allegoric story narrated by a dwarf living on the court in an unnamed Italian city probably in the 15th century, but actually all the hints point us in the same direction as Machiavellis Prince who was modelled on Cesare Borgia/5.

The Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami is a captive bred color variety developed from the Dwarf Gourami. The males will normally reach about 3 inches ( cm) in length, with the females being slightly smaller at around 2 1/3 inches (6 cm).

Gourami Food I have powder blue dwarf gourami and a fire tail gourami. I've noticed my that my fire tail gourami, especially, won't eat flake food, but he dives for frozen blood worms.

Okay so earlier this week I bought a dwarf gourami and I did spend about 45 minutes staring at the available fish before I bought him. He did seem very healthy when I purchased him - I mean he was swimming around and what-not.

When I brought him home and put him in his tank that was when I started to question his behavior. He seems to spend most of his time sitting on the bottom of the tank.

Dwarf Gouramis - 10/24/05 I have a pair of male dwarf Gourami and they have been fighting a lot recently. They are about the same size and the aggression goes both ways. I recently added two tetra to the aquarium, and both Gourami have been chasing them constantly.

Hi. I'm considering buying a dwarf gouramI for my L, they are lovely. In my LFS they are sold in pairs (1 male with 1 female). They are all in the tank together and seem to get along fine, but I've heard that the male can stress out the female by chasing her etc.

I don't want to get more. Also, my history with Gourami is short, due to an Ich plague that dismantled my entire aquarium. But I know for a fact that like their cousins, Betta fish, can be very lazy, and spend a great amount of their time sulking, and lying around.
