well it could be a bubble nest as gouramis are bubble nesters, or it could be a protien build up. is there a film on the surface of the tank, are the bubbles near the outlet on you filter?
Bettas and gouramis along with others are all anabantoids - using a labyrinth structure in their gills - these two types are bubble nest builders - sure you have two males? One could be building regardless, but if the other is a female, you may end up with some eggs! You can remove the bubbles, but you may see them again - they'll rebuild. enjoy!No there is no bubbles near my outlet of my filter. I have nothing skimming the surface at night but there is no film.
I didn't know gouramis were nesters but as I sit here watching my tank now I keep seeing him going over under it and doing something. When I get close though he comes out. he is also being extra territorial. He was pretty bad before but now he is really bad with the other gourami.
Can I just pull the bubbles out since I have 2 males in there and he obviously can't breed with anything?
yup you can take it out, it wont cause a problem, he is just happy! you might want to try and find a female and see what happens.
My tank is full and I don't have the time nor room for gourami fry. As it is now I am only home once a week to do my WC and prune and such. My mother and sister dose and feed for me during the week.
