The Dark Knight Paradise Gouramie

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).

    Hy, very nice Makropodus….
    it may depend on where they are from but we have a ‘population of them in outside ponds (central europ) and they even survive winters under ice….

    COOL FISH!

    Yo. Very nice. I like the soundtrack. Did you ever get these to spawn for you? I’m thinking of getting some for the 180 with a school of white clouds. I will pull the heaters and let the temp fall into the 50s over the winter.
