Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My real name is Trichogaster leeri. I grow on an average to about 10cm (about 4 inches) and I typically have a dark lateral line over a brownish body with an orange throat (especially on males during breeding time) and am covered by a mosaic pattern of small white spots. I am originally from Thailand, Borneo, Sumatran and Malaysia although I also inhabit many other areas of SE Asia. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Pearl

These fish are very easy to keep as they will eat both dried and live foods. They like the water temperature to be around 22-28C(72-82F) and the water to be slightly acidic. The tank should be roomy with several hiding places, as these fish will stress easily if they feel threatened by more aggressive fish, and the bigger the better, as they like to have plenty of room to swim around.

In the fish trade they are sometimes referred to as mosaic gourami and lace gourami but the name most often used is pearl.
2. My real name is Trichogaster trichopterus. I grow on an average to about 15cm (about 6 inches) and I typically am one single color with three distinctive spots. I originate from Laos, Thailand and Cambodia although I also inhabit other areas of SE Asia and am one of the most common fish in the pet trade. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Blue

A very peaceful fish. It will eat pretty much any fish food and is a good community fish as long as it is equal in size with it's tank mates. It does best in slightly soft water which is kept around 24-28C(74-82F). They like a roomy tank with hiding places as they will become stressed if kept with more aggressive fish.

They are also called golden gouramis, three-spot gourami, and opaline gourami.
3. My real name is Trichogaster pectoraois. I grow up to 25cm (about 10 inches) and typically I am dark greenish gray colored with a dotted lateral line with gray and black vertical lines. I am originally from Laos, Cambodian, Vietnam. I am pretty much an equal opportunity eater eating whatever comes near me. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Snakeskin

A fish that will eat pretty much everything and yet is a perfect community fish as it is very calm and will typically be a great community fish even ignoring fish that are much smaller. This fish is not one of the most common ones seen in the fish trade as it is commonly used for food in its native habitats.
4. My real name is Trichogaster microlepis. I grow on average up to about 13cm (about 5 inches) and I am typically a bright silver color with little or no other colorization. I am originally from Cambodia and Vietnam but have been introduced into other areas of SE Asia. Unlike other gouramis I also will typically have a much more pronounced sloped head. What type of Gourami am I?

Answer: Moonbeam

These fish are the perfect fish for beginners as they are very, very peaceful and easy to care for eating a wide variety of food. Their water needs are minimal, although they do best in water ranged from 26-30C(79-86F) and water that is slightly soft. They like lots of plants and can be a timid fish if more aggressive fish are present, which can present a problem at feeding time.
5. My real name is Helostoma temmincki. I grow on average up to about 30cm (about 12 inches). I am typically a bright pink or light pink color with very large clear fins and a very distinctive jaw which is different from other gouramis. I am from Thailand, Borneo and Sumatra, although like a lot of my kin I now inhabit many areas of SE Asia. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Kissing

These fish are actually very important to the food trade in SE Asia as they are easily caught and easy to cook. In the aquarium they needs lots of room as not only do they grow fast but they can be very territorial. They will dig so larger rocks are necessary and they will destroy pretty much any edible plant.

They prefer the water to be around 22-28C(72-82F) and they are equal opportunity eaters. They will not do well with fish smaller than they are and are not recommended for beginners.
6. My real name is Colisa lalia. I grow on average to about 6cm (about 2.5 inches). I am typically a very brightly colored blue with orange, silver and red vertical stripes. I am from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. What type of Gourami am I?

Answer: Dwarf

These fish are very easy to keep, tolerating higher temperatures than many community fish. They are very peaceful, and can live with any fish that is not significantly larger and more aggressive, although they can be very aggressive towards each other.

They like a tank with many plants, even floating plants and frequent water changes are a must as they are somewhat more prone to diseases than many other fish.
7. My real name is Parosphromenus deissneri. I grow on average up to about 3-4cm (about 1.5 inches). I typically have reddish or turquoise fins and my body is black and white/yellow/silver horizontal striped. I am originally from Malaysia and Singapore although like many of my kin I now inhabit many portions of SE Asia. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Licorice

These fish are not the best gourami for beginners. They like the water temperature to be around 24-28C(74-82F) and the water to be slightly acidic, and frequent water changes are recommended. They love a well planted tank and will thrive best in a single species environment.
8. My real name is Sphaerichthys osphromenoides. I grow on average up to about 6cm (about 2.5 inches). I am typically shades of brown with gold or light brown stripes running down my body. I am originally from Sumatra, the Malay Peninsula, and Borneo although now I inhabit many areas of SE Asia. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Chocolate

These fish, while very beautiful, are definitely not for beginners. They need optimal water conditions and are not recommended for a community tank. They like the water temperature to be 25-27C(77-81F) which is higher than most gouramis preference and prefer the water to be slightly acidic and well planted.

They are also picky eaters, unlike most gouramis, preferring live or frozen foods.
9. My real name is Trichogaster chuna (although I have also been called Colisa chuna). I grow on average to about 5cm (about 2 inches). I am typically various shades of red and orange and my color can change somewhat as conditions differ. I am originally from Bangladesh and India living in rivers which are thick in vegetation. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Honey

These fish are perfect for smaller tanks and community tanks as they are very tolerant of other fish (although the males can be aggressive towards each other) as long as they are kept with non-aggressive fish. They prefer the water temperature to be 22-28C(72-82F) and are fairly tolerant of water chemistry as long as it stays relatively stable.
10. My real name is Osphronemus goramy. I grow on average to about 70cm (about 27.5 inches). I am typically a pale yellow color with pale blue stripes running vertically but there is also a variant which is basically a pink to pale golden color. I am originally from India, Malaysia and Indochina where I am used frequently as an important food source. What type of gourami am I?

Answer: Giant

These are fairly easy fish to keep but they are certainly a "tank buster" growing to a very large size. They will have to be kept either alone or with fish which are similar in size as they will kill fish smaller. They will eat many foods although they lean towards algae based foods (although as they get older they will have certain likes and dislikes) and they are very tolerant of temperature and chemistry as long as it is kept stable.
