The Opaline Gourami, also known as the Marbled Gourami, is a beautiful and peaceful fish that makes an excellent addition to any community aquarium.


These fish are relatively large, growing up to 4-5 inches in length, making them suitable for medium to large-sized tanks. They are best kept in a tank of at least 30 gallons with plenty of hiding places such as plants or driftwood.


The Opaline Gourami is rated as an "Easy" fish to care for out of three options, which means they are suitable for beginner aquarists.


These fish are omnivorous and should be fed a varied diet consisting of high-quality dry, frozen, and live foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and small pellets. They should be fed once or twice a day to ensure their optimal health.


The Opaline Gourami is native to Southeast Asia, where it can be found in slow-moving rivers, streams, and marshes.


In terms of coloration, the Opaline Gourami has a beautiful iridescent blue-green body with a pinkish-orange stripe running along its sides. Males have longer dorsal fins than females, which makes them easy to distinguish.
