Blue Gouramis are among the hardiest aquarium fish on the market. A color variation of the Three Spot Gourami, they sport only two spots—one in the center of the body and a second at the caudal pentacle (beginning of the tail). Where is the third spot? It’s the eye! Usually silvery blue, their colors change considerably with their moods. During spawning, they acquire a much deeper blue hue. The Opaline or Cosby Hybrid variation lacks spots and has a darker blue marbling, and are rarely available for sale.
The Blue Gourami. which is usually whitish blue, is a natural color variation of the Brown or Lavender Gourami. It has two spots—one in the center of its body and the other at the base of the tail. If these spots start to fade, it’s likely your fish is experienced serious stress caused by overcrowding or poor water conditions.
