Diet & Nutrition: Will eat flake, frozen, and live foods. Serving a good variety of live and flake foods will help ensure optimum health. If you have a community tank with other large fish, make sure they aren't scaring the Moonlight Gourami away from the food. This is a timid fish who will not fight for it's dinner, even if very hungry.
Breeding & Spawning: Egg layer that builds a bubble nest. Should be provided a separate breeding tank, as other fish will eat eggs and small babies (fry). Use dark gravel and provide plenty of floating plants for building the bubble nest.
Gender: Males can be identified by the orange to red coloration of the pelvic fins, as well as the long dorsal fins that ends in a point. In females the pelvic fins are colorless to yellow, and dorsal fins are shorter and rounder.
