The common name of this fish is all it took for me to want it (I am a bit of a batman fan). The pictures sealed the deal. This is a typical paradise gouramie in just about every way, except that it comes from some pretty temperate climates and prefers its habitat cool. I am probably keeping them too warm, but that will change with I give them the 75 planted tank in the living room. That aquarium stays in the low seventies, and dips into the high 60′s in the Winter. I have a group of six, but these two are the pair. They colored up nicely this week, but I think the water is too warm for them to spawn. Hopefully moving them to a colder tank will help. Cool fish! (literally… LOL).
