Hello Again,

I've managed to get pics of one of my pearl gourami's and again bow to your knowledge - any help /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

I reckon they're female based on finnage but seem a bit organgey underneath so not sure.

They behave pretty oddly as well - they both spend most of their time in a vary confined space, and leave each other alone, then when they're both out, one chases the other around.

i would have said a female going of the body shape as well, but there is a chance it could be a young male thats not yet got the dorsal shape.
give us another pic in a couple of months by then it's sex should be sorted.

Yuppers that's why I was asking about size as it looked a small fish. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> Dave does most of the chasing occur at feeding time?

Thanks Again guys!
I'm not too sure what they are, I've addedd some floating plants (Amazon Frogbit allegedly) since then, and the larger one is under that all the time, but won't let the other anywhere near it.

Feeding time is pretty much the only time they never chase each other, as they're busy eating!
