The Blue Gourami is a color variation of the Three Spot Gourami Trichopodus trichopterus. Did you know that its name is derived from the two spots on its side with a third spot being the eye? Now you Know…
The Blue Gourami and the Three-spot Gourami are identical except that the Blue Gourami has a hazy, whitish-blue coat.
The Blue Gourami is a beautiful and durable aquarium fish. This is an ideally excellent first fish for people new to the aquarist hobby. They are long lived with each specimen having a remarkably individual personality. They will use their pelvic fins to feel their environment and even feel their tank mates. They also seem to be quite aware of their owners.
