Gold gouramis are one of the hardiest, beginner-friendly fish you can buy. They can survive in a tank with varying oxygen levels, water temperature, and ph. This means diseases aren’t usually an issue if your aquarium is taken care of. Gold gouramis are a color variation of the three spot gourami, but they lack the two distinct spots on their body. Their gold and orange color makes them a vibrant alternative to other gourami fish. The gold gourami is a community fish and can share an aquarium with other fish, but it does get more aggressive with age. Choosing the right companion fish is essential to keeping a happy aquarium.
