Smile Diptych- update

I received 2 Fluval Ebi's over the holidays. I decided to do a diptych approach. Currently cycling, i'm figuring out what fish I want to stock both aquariums with.

Also using the 13watt lights that came with the aquariums and the fluval nano filters. Dosing with flourish excel for the time being.

Is that a Pseudomugil gertrudae (this one), just young or a female? Either way very lovely fish.

They are, and I believe they are all still quite young... Hopefully I have some males in the school.

Keep a close eye on the dwarf gourami, in that small of a tank the dominant one is very likely to kill the weaker male.. or if its female harass her to death trying to get it on. They may get along ok as adolescents, but at sexual maturity.. it will get ugly. Best to have one per a tank. Females are notably dull/lacking in color and generally their top fin is more rounded, male typical have more pointed tip (your pictured gourami is male).

Thanks for the tip I have been keeping a close on on them. Both seem happy currently and show little signs of aggression. Worst case I divide them.


Thanks

Aside from the aggression issues males have as adults with established territories (much the same way bettas are... they're in the same family too) dwarf gourami are a wonderful fish, beautiful to watch, and can have awesome personalities! I have a powder blue (my avatar is a close up of his scales) and he's my favorite fish *whispers* but don't tell the others. >.>
It sucks they only live an average of 2.5 years, wish it would stretch out longer to 5 years like bettas sometime do.
If you did not get yours from a reputable breeder but from a lfs instead, keep an eye out for dwarf gourami disease also called Dwarf gourami iridovirus. I found this page useful for symptom and details on it. Generally if they live past 1 year they're safe and not likely to have this.
