How do I know if my gourami is happy?

You know your gouramis are happy if they show the following signs of being happy and healthy:

  • Healthy appetite
  • Active swimming near the surface
  • No injuries or abnormal growths
  • No white spots or blemishes
  • Clear, normal eyes, that are not cloudy or bulging
  • Bright and vibrant scale colors
  • Not hiding all the time
  • Not laying on the bottom of the tank

Keep your gouramis happy by fulfilling their basic needs. Provide them with ample swimming space and healthy food. Place a lot of colorful decorations and tall plants in the tank for them to hide and play with. Lastly, maintain their ideal water conditions and clean their tank regularly.
