How often should you feed gouramis?

You should feed your gouramis twice a day. Only feed them small amounts of food to prevent the water from becoming dirty and contaminated. Give your gouramis no more than what they can eat within two or three minutes.

You should pay attention to the quality of their diet as well. Most gouramis are omnivores and thrive best when given a high-quality, varied diet. The best foods for gouramis include:

  • Floating pellets and flakes
  • Brine shrimps
  • Freeze-dried bloodworms
  • Small insects
  • Insect larvae
  • Earthworms
  • Tubifex
  • Algae rounds
  • Spirulina flakes
