    Stopped into one of my LFS’s in Seattle last week and saw these, labeled”Burmese choc. gourami”. One shopkeeper is very knowledgeable stuff and said they were p. ocellatus, close. Never seen or heard of them before but like them! I brought 2 home, lost one the second night. Hoping to get back and get a few more as the one is obviously lonely, but it’s an hour and a half drive. not much of a pic, will get better when it lets me.

    as you can see they have been bred. no problem to buy them in germany/switzerland at a reasonable price.

    “Es gibt in der DATZ 4/2002 einen guten Artikel von Jörg Freyhof über Haltung und Zucht deiner Fische. Die Fische sollen recht unproblematisch sein , laut Autor lassen sich die Fische gut in weichem und harten Wasser halten ,nahmen wohl sogar Trockenfutter , die Nachzucht erfolgte in weichem Wasser (dgh1 ,ph7 ,25°C) ,es sind Jungfische im Aufzuchtbecken extensiv groß geworden.

    Nachzucht=breeding
    I try to get the article if needed.

    well, would you believe it, i picked up 7 of these wee fish yesterday at my friends shop. he didn’t know what they were. pics to follow asap.
    they are in normal tapwater at the moment, but the plan is to get them into rainwater as soon as i can.

    Hmm interesting that the market suddenly appears flooded with these – same as what’s happened with Notropis chrosomus. *scratches chin* Let’s see if someone manages to breed them. Keith I hope it’s you mate!

    I did manage to get 3 more of these shortly after getting the first ones. Out of the 5 I have 3 left and they’re doing well. I have a tank on the deck growing algae and whatever else pops up. Lately there’s been some nice tiny wigglers appearing and they are getting used to taking them from the turkey baster.


    How are yours doing Keith?? Anyone else?

    Charles if you’re able to get that article it’d be great.
