Dwarf Gourami Male 3cm Colisa lalia

The Dwarf Gourami is a peaceful and shy fish. If you have a pair of them, the two fish will swim together.  Dwarf Gouramis are considered labyrinth fish, which means they breathe straight from the air with a lung-like labyrinth organ and need to have access to the water's surface.
