This is a recent and fantastic variant of the Dwarf Gourami, and is being sold in a local fish shop for about 10 times the price of the latter. Even though I was committed to keeping only cheap and hardy fish in this tank, I couldn't resist the beauty of this couple and bought it. Up to now they've proven to be just as hardy as the wild strain and were well worth the price.
