Dwarf Gourami

The Dwarf Gourami is sometimes called the Honey Gourami, the Sunburst Gourami or the Dwarf Gourami, and is closely related to the Trichogaster lalia Dwarf Gourami. Both the male and female are pale yellow-brown in color, except during spawning. When spawning the male becomes honey to ochre in color with a blue throat and black on the front of the anal fin.

Roundtail Betta

Betta fish are native to Asia, where they live in the shallow water of marshes, ponds, or slow-moving streams. Male bettas are devoted fathers who build bubble nests for their young with their mouths and fiercely protect their babies from predators. Just like us, betta fish are diurnal. That means they’re active during the day and sleep at night, requiring darkness to get a good night’s rest.
