picked up half a dozen of these at the weekend (thanks richy). a small unassuming licorice gourami, not much on the net but i gather they will do well in a tank some 18x12 with soft water, ph around 6 for normal keeping and down to 4.5 or so for breeding, males slightly more colourfull.
they are a cave spawner, males building a nest in a plant pot or similar.
he tends to the eggs and fry until free swimming and then they are on their own.
a few reports of successful breeding have been reported across the globe, so fingers crossed i can do the same.
they are taking white worm and grindle worm at the mo and are fattening up well.
if i get any more info i will add it to this post. i have some pics but due to computer problems can't upload them at the mo.
