The Pearl Gourami is one of the most beautiful and prized members of the gourami family. It is much more peaceful than the Three-Spot Gourami and grows less (about 10 cm). However, in my experience this species isn't as hardy as other gouramies, and sometimes shows a very shy behavior, hiding most of the time behind plants and rocks. Even so, it's an excellent addition to any asian or community tank.
