Golden Mosaic Gourami are great eye-catchers, which you can enjoy for a long time. The scientifically also called Trichogaster leeri labyrinth fish originate from Southeast Asia and are a great color variation of the wild form. On their silver ground color they shimmer from the head to the upper back in a wonderful golden tone, which is lined by an irregular black side line. Isolated bright spots give them their namesake mosaic pattern.
Here you can get German offspring.
Their strikingly elongated pointed filamentous pelvic fins give them their name. You can distinguish the sexes mainly by their dorsal fin, which is more pointed in the male and more rounded in the female. Keep them best in a school of 5-10 animals and offer them an aquarium from 130 cm edge length. In places you can plant it densely, you should also offer floating plants, because they use these among other things for foam nesting. Pay attention to a good water hygiene, also humic substances should not be neglected. Because they come to the water surface to breathe, this should always be freely accessible.
You can breed the peaceful animals relatively easy. The males build a foam nest at the water surface into which they spit the eggs of the female. Meanwhile the males are quite territorial and defend the nest as well as the fry. It makes sense to move the female during this time. You can raise the young later with Artemia nauplii, also microworms are good.
The peaceful Mosaic Gourami can be socialized well with other non-hectic fish, but you should avoid fin-nibbling comrades and other labyrinth fish. They also do well with Amano shr imp or dwarf shrimp, but crayfish may pinch and injure their long fins.
As omnivores, gourami will munch on both duckweed and algae, but will do just as well on floating flake or dry food. Every now and then you can also offer them live and frozen food.
Our food recommendation: With the NatureHolic BettaFeed a special food for fighting fish was tailor-made, whose soft granules remind of the consistency of insect larvae in nature. The soft beads protect the sensitive fish mouth from micro-cracks caused by too hard food grains. The specially developed NH Immun+ complex as well as the NH Color+ high-performance additive support the immune system and the magnificent color formation of the fish.
Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free from snails, planaria and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.
Expert Tip: We recommend when keeping fish the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.
