Gold Gourami - Aquarium Fish
They are so timid and friendly towards most other fishes, as they make for an excellent addition to the common community tanks that have a diverse population (excluding the extra aggressive fish). They have a good appetite, too. Some people claim that they can be aggressive towards certain types of fish with long fins, but I've never had a problem with 'em. The most popular one out of all the gouramis is most likely the Blue Gourami (a.k.a. 3-spot Gourami). There are other variations of this fish, but like I said, the Gold Gourami is my favorite for this particular class of fish. Because of their capacity to breathe atmospheric oxygen, the gouramis, like the betta, can withstand less-than-ideal tank conditions in the form of overcrowding albeit you should never constantly keep them in poor conditions. I have had one killed before by another fish, but it was a complete accident. A big bala shark got scared during the middle of the night and darted into the corner of the tank and busted a plump Gold Gourami right in its side. Other than that, I have never had any trouble keeping them alive.
