The Powder Blue Dwarf Gourami, is a color variation of the Dwarf Gourami, and is an iridescent powder blue fish with red vertical stripes. This is a peaceful, shy fish that if in a pair will swim together. Powder Blue Dwarf Gouramis are considered Labyrinth Fish, meaning they breathe directly from the air, and must have access to the surface.
Powder Blue Dwarf Gouramis require a tank that is 40Litres or larger. The aquarium should be heavily planted and have at least part of the surface covered with floating plants. A darker substrate will help show-off the gourami's colors, and peat filtration is recommended. Regular water changes are a must, as this gourami can be susceptible to disease. They should not be kept with large, aggressive fish, but are compatible with other small, peaceful fish as well as fellow gouramis. Loud noises often scare them, so the tank should be in a quiet area.
The Powder Blue Dwarf Gourami is an omnivore and prefers both algae-based foods as well as meaty foods. An algae-based flake food, along with freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp will provide these fish with the proper nutrition.
